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.
