“WASH for Peace” aims to equip UNICEF staff, sector partners and counterparts with resources and tools to develop and implement effective WASH for Peace interventions in fragile and conflict-affected contexts.

According to UNICEF, there are currently 460 million children living in conflict zones. Children under the age of 15 who are living in conflict are on average nearly three times more likely to die from diseases linked to unsafe water and sanitation than from direct violence.

Developed in collaboration with many UNICEF staff and WASH sector partners, “WASH for Peace” is intended to help develop capacity and support the development of conflict-sensitive and peacebuilding WASH programming.
