Introducing the “New” Urban WASH Core Working Group

The initiative to establish a UW Core Group is based on initial discussions in the beginning of 2021 with National Societies active in Urban WASH (UW), who expressed the wish to develop clear guidelines, a roadmap and objectives within a small group of experts from interested NSs working in UW before we start to reinvigorate the Technical Working Group for UW once again.

The Urban Action Kit is a quick-start, low-cost, do-it-yourself guide to urban resilience activities including WASH related activities that will increase a community-based organization’s visibility and engagement on urban issues. Activities in the Kit require little to no funding; are short-term engagements; and use existing networks and skills.
