It is a targeted effort to identify different stakeholder perspectives of the gaps and spaces for innovation in emergency WASH, rather than a systematic review of the evidence around WASH programming. A total of 909 people were consulted across around 40 countries, involving individual practitioners and approximately 45 different organizations, spanning donors, the UN system and international and national NGOsData was collected during a six month consultation period and draws on six complementary research components:ã A review of relevant literature producedover the last five yearsãStructured focus group discussions witheight beneficiary groups in six countriesãFacilitated workshop discussion withWASH practitioners working at the countryand sub-national level in 12 countriesã An on-line survey of humanitarian WASHpractitionersãTwo facilitated sessions with Global WASHCluster (GWC) meetingsãConsultation with five major donororganisations supporting humanitarianWASH programming and policy Across all six components of the analysis, sanitation issues were identified as the major area with gaps and potential for innovation. The second major gap identified by four groups was hygiene issues; the country and sub country WASH sector groups and the beneficiary groups selected water as the second   priority and hygiene third. The specific issues raised have been consolidated into 57 different categories. These were then ranked according to the number of times they were mentioned in the feedback and the priority they were given in the workshops.The most significant gaps identified in emergency WASH were:1.Latrines in locations where no pits arepossible (urban, high watertable/flooding)2.Community participation andempowerment of vulnerable groups,including monitoring and evaluation fromthe outset3.Latrine emptying and desludging4.Hygiene promotion and the importance ofunderstanding context, including socio-anthropology issues5.Community Led Total Sanitation (CLTS)and sanitation marketing6.Urban alternatives for excreta disposal7.Exit strategies and sustainability issuesfrom the outset8.Final sewage disposal options afterdesludging and treatment9.Further development of non-toilet options/ early response/mobile10.Hand washing hardware and promotionand sustainability (including soap) andnon-soap options11.Water Treatment, particularly bulk andpoint of use household filters, includingcost and sustainability issues12.The need for low-tech WASH solutionsacceptable and sustainable by locals Executive Summary
