AGUASAN Workshop 25 (2009)
The WatSan Contiguum - towards a more dynamic interaction between emergency relief, rehabilitation and development
Forty-eight humanitarian aid and development specialists from around the world gathered in Gwatt (Switzerland) in June 2009 for a week of intensive exchange on this issue within the framework of the 25th AGUASAN workshop. Based on the analysis of different case studies (Bosnia & Herzegovina, Moldova, Chad, Afghanistan, Haiti), the participants jointly developed contiguum guiding principles, a related model for the planning and assessment of WatSan development programmes as well as a series of practical recommendations to facilitate a successful transition from relief to development. The results of the workshop are available at http://www.aguasan.ch as online/downloadable PPT presentation with linked background documents.
