The Global WASH Cluster (GWC) operates on the principles of coordinated partnership, promoting holistic, people centred and inclusive humanitarian responses in the WASH sector in over 30 countries. Currently, the GWC membership has 88 members, and 2 standing observers
The Global WASH Cluster’s (GWC) Strategic Plan sets out the key priorities based on a broad consultation across key stakeholders. It describes how the GWC intends to meet the commitments associated with the 6+1 core functions.
Provide timely operational support to national and sub-national humanitarian WASH coordination platforms to meet the TA 6+1 core functions and improve Humanitarian WASH service delivery.
Ensure that key WASH stakeholders (sub-national, national and global) have the capacity to coordinate and deliver an appropriate and timely response in emergency.
Influence and advocate for an effective humanitarian WASH coordination response and funding.
