WASH Research in Humanitarian Crises Global Survey

Publication: 19 Jul 2022

The WASH in Humanitarian Crises Research Agenda seeks to generate a consensus-based list of priority research questions that can steer investments in research among the WASH in the humanitarian crises field up until 2030. As part of an organisation and/or network who reflects a broad spread of geography and areas of expertise in WASH and/or humanitarian programmes, you have been selected to take part in a survey to judge and prioritise a list of proposed research questions.

This list of 130 questions was generated by the sector and are grouped by types of WASH intervention. The questions could be applicable to any persons or populations affected by or at-risk of humanitarian crises; have any geographical focus (e.g., global, regional, national, or local); and, are applicable to different outcomes (e.g., health, behavioural, social, economic, development, inclusions, lab efficacy, etc.). 

We will start by asking you a few questions about yourself, and then questions will appear in a random order. From your personal perspective, you will be asked to decide if a research question should be prioritised by the sector ("Yes"), might be prioritised ("Maybe") or not at all ("No"). You can also decline questions if they are not your area of expertise. We ask that you do complete the survey even if you feel unable to respond to some areas. 

The survey should take 1 hour of your time.
