Imagine your aid agency has operations in a country where homosexuality is illegal. A lesbian candidate applies for a family posting and wishes to take her civil partner with her. Where does your organisation stand? What are the legal issues around equal opportunities? What about possible safety implications?

As the world grows more urbanised, large scale disasters are increasingly impacting urban areas. The role aid agencies have and the response that they provide is changing from the more familiar rural or camp contexts. Urban emergencies have a higher level of complexity and the kind of response required is greatly affected by the different urban environments, whether huge cities, medium-sized towns, peri-urban or slum areas. Aid agencies are much less significant players in urban responses, as their available resources are often dwarfed by those of existing service providers.

About the course

Provision of water, sanitation and health and hygiene education are vital components in halting the spread of an epidemic. Required not only to raise hygiene standards in affected populations, but also to support medical facilities, this course looks at the role of WASH in an epidemic response and the preparedness, prevention and response actions it underpins.

About the course:

"In Haiti we brainstormed, ‘what makes a good toilet?’ with small groups of people. Factors included: a seat with a lid, a solid structure made from wood, that it can be locked, cleanliness, toilet paper and hand washing facilities. It isn’t rocket science, but we need to ensure that we are aware of these things in our planning.”
