Perceptions of what constitutes an ‘emergency’ vary between personnel and between organisations. Generally, an emergency may be considered to be the result of a man-made and/or natural disaster, whereby there is a serious, often sudden, threat to the health of the affected community which has great difficulty in coping without external assistance.
This book has been written to help all those involved in planning and implementing emergency sanitation programmes. Users may include field technicians, engineers and hygiene promoters, as well as technical and non-technical staff at agency headquarters.
