The German WASH Network continues its well-established Regional WASH Workshop series in the years 2021-2022 aiming at strengthening local WASH disaster preparedness and response capacities in order to allow for the provision of appropriate and effective humanitarian WASH services in disaster and crisis prone regions. The Regional WASH Workshops are part of a strategic portfolio of activities developed and carried out in close cooperation between the German WASH Network and the German Federal Foreign Office to respond to the growing demand for emergency coordination and qualified humanitarian WASH capacity in Germany and respective partner countries.
WASH in emergencies
Particularly the strengthening of actors in the priority fields of preparedness, disaster risk reduction (DRR), climate change adaption (CCA), inclusion & gender, behaviour change and cash & markets can make a significant and sustainable difference for people living in disaster and crisis affected areas. The workshops are seen as a vital exchange platform to allow for necessary knowledge sharing, South-South learning and networking among regionally active German WASH Network members and its local partners as well as for strengthening the linkages to existing regional and international humanitarian networks and central actors of the humanitarian system. The initiative is informed by the WASH Cluster System and continually adapted to the strategic priorities of the Global WASH Cluster in the fields of knowledge management and capacity building.
The identified target regions for the Regional WASH Workshops are anglophone and francophone Africa, Asia and the MENA region.
Please note: Due to the ongoing global pandemic all Regional WASH Workshops in 2021 will be conducted in a virtual online format (on 5 consecutive days).
