DESCRIPTION

Vulnerable groups and settlements, such as slums, post-conflict and post-disaster camps, and rural and indigenous communities with specific characteristics and needs, require particular forms of intervention in WASH services, both for environmental, technological and educational issues as well as for management and sustainability. Investments in water and sanitation infrastructure historically have been concentrated on public policies aimed at urban areas at the expense of these communities. As a result, populations in remote, rural and indigenous communities; informal settlements; and post-conflict and post-disaster areas not have (proper) access to these services. Therefore, it is fundamental to provide them with equitable access to WASh services.
