The UNHCR Cost of Water Project

by | Oct 12, 2016

The Cost of Water Project supports the effective planning and sustainable management of water supply systems in refugee camps and settlements. Launched in 2014 by the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Unit in DPSMs Public Health Section in partnership with IRC, the project measures the overall costs of providing effective water systems in a variety of refugee hosting contexts to create a flexible decision-making tool specific to refugee situations. When completed, the tool will improve data collection, planning and budgeting for water projects, making information easily available and comparable for UNHCR staff, partners and donors, and lead to more efficient water service delivery to refugees and other displaced people across UNHCR operations.
