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.
Provide to the Humanitarian WASH actors a timely access to appropriate and accurate knowledge on coordination and response.
*This data was collected through a Global Wash Cluster HRP/ Appeal Database in 2021, for the PIN figures, and target figures only up to 80% of the data was found.
More information in the interactive GWC HRP dashboard.
The Field Support Team (FST) mechanism is the principle means for the GWC to provide Operational Support to National Humanitarian WASH Coordination Platforms (NHWCP).
The Coordination Toolkit (CTK) is an online guidance manual for cluster coordinators and coordination teams to access comprehensive support on humanitarian WASH coordination.
The GWC Helpdesk supports National Humanitarian WASH Coordination Platforms (NHWCP) through remote support activities, capacity development, direct missions and more.
The GWC has developed a training offer for both partners and staff involved in coordination. It includes e-learning and face-to-face courses that can be tailored to country needs.
