Camps are places of refuge for people fleeing conflict and disaster, but they can be dangerous, especially for women and girls.

Initial lessons learned in making sanitation data useful for decision making

Useful data is important for effective decision making. In 2017, the World Bank reported that poor data has led to an ineffective allocation of resources across the sanitation sector.
