Dear colleagues,

We are happy to share with you the "Realtime Assessment of WASH Coordination in Humanitarian Emergencies" summary report developed by Tufts University in collaboration with UNICEF and the Global WASH Cluster.

A key component of effective humanitarian response is coordination, which brings together relevant stakeholders and ultimately, ideally, increases efficiency. This work aimed to better understand the perspective of National Coordination Platform (NCP) partners on how water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) coordination leads to response outcomes in humanitarian contexts. To gain a deeper understanding of the views of WASH stakeholders on the overall value of the NCP in humanitarian response, evaluations were conducted in three contexts facing different humanitarian crises: Cox’s Bazar, DRC, and Yemen.

Over a 9-month period from February to October 2020, Tufts University conducted and collected the following:

1) 17 key informant interviews with NCP staff and collected information monthly on NCP activities, tools, and products;
2) 76 key informant interviews with WASH stakeholders; and,
3) 157 online surveys and summarized these results together with a “NCP survey” conducted in Cox’s Bazar.

You can find the summary report and annexes below:
The report will be presented in a webinar with Tufts University at the GWC Satellite Events on Monday 26th April, at 1PM CEST.
Join the meeting here.

Note that the report will also be the foundation to revise the minimum requirements for National Coordination Platforms in collaboration with Tufts University in 2021. Further consultations will be held in the coming weeks for this exercise and we will keep you informed on the process.

Best regards,
CAST (Cluster Advocacy and Support Team)
