This Water and Sanitation Review has been undertaken in accordance with article 4 of the EC Humanitarian Regulation 1257/96 which allows for the financing of "- the technical assistance necessary for the implementation of humanitarian projects, including the exchange of technical know-how and experience.".
The review was carried out by an independent company 'Aguaconsult' and involved extensive consultation with DG ECHO's staff, partners and other relevant parties. This DVD contains the results of the review: a succinct policy statement by DG ECHO; a Concept Paper; and Model Guidelines. The products should be consulted and used in conjunction with each other.
It must be noted that DG ECHO's policies may adjust over time as a result of further lessons learned and changes in the nature of humanitarian aid. The application of policy at field level will depend on the prevailing local conditions at the time of an intervention, which are likely to vary considerably. Therefore, the review has produced 'Model' Guidelines based on good practice, rather than prescriptive or blueprint guidelines.
Humanitarian and other organisations are encouraged to draw upon the review's products. DG ECHO does not retain copyright ownership of this review, but requests that the source of the information is communicated.
