The following WASH activities have been prioritized for 2019: responsive activities through WASH service provisions to the unconnected; operational interventions for service providers to maintain existing levels of essential WASH services; response to demolitions, other man-made and natural disasters as well as household water treatment. Remedial activities will focus on the provision of WASH services in health facilities, schools and other key institutions; provision of WASH services to the underserved; hygiene promotion/awareness and sanitation facilities (especially in open defecation areas). Protracted/Environment Building activities will focus on strengthening the capacity of WASH service providers; improving operation and maintenance (O&M); strengthening governance and WASH knowledge management. The WASH Cluster will also strengthen the coordination, advocacy and emergency preparedness of the WASH sector, while enhancing gender and protection in WASH humanitarian actions.
