The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) has the pleasure to inform you that a scoping study on emergency cash transfer programming in the WaSH and shelter sectors is now available here.
The objective of this study is to take stock of the recent advancements in the use of cash transfer programming in the shelter and WaSH sectors to respond to emergencies and provide recommendations to encourage quality cash transfer programming at scale in those sectors. This study aims to identify themes for future research, advocacy, case studies, capacity building initiatives, and debates or other recommended activities related to cash transfer programming in shelter and settlements and WaSH programming.
Geogenic contamination handbook
You can download our handbook for free on the mitigation arsenic and fluoride in drinking water from: www.wrq.eawag.ch The handbook is a product of Eawag’s transdisciplinary water research team “Water Resource Quality” (WRQ) that worked on the mitigation of arsenic- and fluoride-contaminated drinking water for low- and middle-income countries from 2006 to 2012. The handbook includes guidelines on water sampling, an outline of available treatment technologies and also highlights the necessity of considering the institutional setting and the financial viability of drinking water services. It also provides guidelines on behavioural change in affected communities, while case studies illustrate integrated mitigation approaches. The manual is available in digital format, including relevant weblinks and attached resources.
