Water, hygiene and sanitation





FROM 05/01/2015 - 03/01/2016




This project is a continuation of the action TGH has been carrying out for over 10 years in Darfur. TGH's intervention strategy in Sudan is illustrated among others by a gradual withdrawal in the historic areas of intervention, coordinated with the involvement of the various actors already present locally, while maintaining a regular monitoring of populations access to basic services. The current action focuses on preparedness and response to emergencies rather recurrent in this region of Sudan, whether of natural or anthropogenic origin. Besides, TGH proposes in this programme to extend its activities to new areas confronted with the arrival of internally displaced populations. Humanitarian presence has been greatly reduced in certain areas such as Foro Boranga and Zalingei, with many consequences, including in terms of water, hygiene and sanitation. Faced with the influx of IDPs, it is necessary to increase humanitarian support to improve their living conditions and facilitate their integration into the local community. Besides, in the areas targeted by this project, the lack of community management is currently preventing populations from coping with crises.

Initially, a contingency plan has been established at State level with the support of local authorities and humanitarian actors present in the territory. This contingency plan follows the plans developed for the localities of Bindizi and Um Dukhun, and aims to bring a harmonized response throughout the territory. An emergency stock, replenished if necessary, will be set up to cover the needs of 20,000 people throughout the project.

A fifteen days assessment will be carried-out after each disaster to best meet the needs of affected populations. Access to drinking water will be provided to targeted areas, and emergency latrines and traditional latrines will be distributed to ensure better sanitary conditions for internally displaced populations.

In times of crisis, non-food items will be distributed to vulnerable populations. In ordre to implement this activity, a safety stock will be built up, and distributions will be carried-out after a quick assessment of the needs of people affected by disasters. Furthermore, an additional distribution will target people with specific needs, in order to best meet these needs.
