Emergency sanitation – planning : WHO technical note for emergencies No. 13

The pressure to help people immediately after a disaster often leads to actions being started before they have been properly planned. Wide experience has shown that this leads to a waste of resources, poor service delivery and low long term benefits for the affected community. It is always important to plan
sanitation interventions before starting work and there is no reason why this should not apply in emergencies or after disasters.

Abstract

The pressure to help people immediately after a disaster often leads to actions being started before they have been properly planned. Wide experience has shown that this leads to a waste of resources, poor service delivery and low long term benefits for the affected community. It is always important to plan
sanitation interventions before starting work and there is no reason why this should not apply in emergencies or after disasters.
