Compendium of water supply technologies in emergencies

The Compendium of Water Supply Technologies in Emergencies is the humanitarian response counterpart to the “Compendium of Drinking Water Systems and Technologies from Source to Consumer” developed by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwest Switzerland (FHNW) in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Selected information sheets have been adapted from this publication as well as from the original report of the Water4India project developed by FHNW and partners, with permission of the authors. Like the development compendium, it disaggregates water supply technologies into their functional components, defines key terminology and provides guidance on identifying the most appropriate water supply technology solutions in a given context. It also provides links to further reading for more information.
