In 2017, the Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF) launched a call for innovative projects that use rapid community engagement to understand the sanitation needs of communities affected by emergencies and to ensure these are adequately reflected in early-stage sanitation provision.

Eclipse Experience and Save the Children UK partnered to bring together user-centred research expertise and extensive humanitarian Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) experience. The team developed a user-centred engagement methodology that involves children and their primary caregivers in the design of sanitation facilities and piloted it in two displacement camps in Bangladesh and Iraq.

What can you find on this site?

While the practice of involving affected people in the design of sanitation facilities is not new in humanitarian settings, there is little recorded evidence of methods used and the effectiveness, or impact, of such approaches. This website presents our learnings from the development process and the two pilots.
