Keeping children healthy through safe water and good hygiene

This methodological process guides the user in defining elements of a strategic plan for transition to nationally led humanitarian WASH coordination. It is intended for use by UNICEF and partners in convening country Humanitarian WASH dialogue in the context of sector wide reform initiatives.

Grounded on the human rights-based approach the methodology describes vulnerability to hazards and shocks, national systems capacity to prevent and manage shocks and ability to mitigate underlying threats of conflict within both rural and urban environments as key functions. It presents ten determinants grouped into four domains representing the Enabling Environment, Institutional and Regulatory Environment, Capacity and Services, and Quality Standards, necessary to develop a strategic action plan for transition from Cluster-led to nationally-led Humanitarian WASH coordination systems.
