 Appropriate and adequate sanitation solutions are crucial for the protection of human and environmental health in emergencies. In recent years there has been an increasing number of sanitation innovations, appropriate for a variety of humanitarian contexts and a stronger sector focus on the entire sanitation service chain (from the toilet via collection and conveyance to the final treatment and safe disposal and/or reuse).

Building on these developments, the Compendium of Sanitation Technologies in Emergencies provides a comprehensive, structured and user-friendly manual and planning guide for sanitation solutions in emergency settings. It serves as a systematic overview of existing and emerging sanitation technologies appropriate for use in humanitarian emergency settings along the entire sanitation service chain.
