The Compendium of Hygiene Promotion in Emergencies and its corresponding online platform has been officially launched at the World Water Forum in Dakar, Senegal, on 23 March 2022. It provides an overview of the current state of best practices and research for hygiene promotion with a focus on humanitarian settings.
The Compendium has been collaboratively developed by Global WASH Cluster partners coordinated by the German WASH network, financially supported by the German Federal Foreign Office and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. More than 50 authors and contributors from a wide range of international WASH organisations and institutions have given their input.
Miriam Harter and Max Friedrich contributed to the chapter on Social and Behaviour Change and were part of the compendium’s core authors team.
The compendium contains the following main sections:
- Preconditions and Enabling Factors
- Community Engagement and Participation
- Assessment, Analysis and Planning
- Social and Behaviour Change
- Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning
In addition, it provides an extensive collection of Tools & Methods as well as a broad overview of Frameworks & Models used in hygiene and sanitation promotion.
A case study section presents the RANAS Case Study – Cleaning of Shared Latrines in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, among others.
The compendium is the third volume of the ‘Emergency WASH Compendium’ series, complementing the already existing compendia on sanitation and water supply technologies in emergencies, published on the Emergency WASH Knowledge Portal.
