Emergency Humanitarian Response for the Flood-Affected Populations in Northern and Eastern Uganda
This project contributes to the UN's consolidated response to the flood emergency in Uganda. It supports specifically UNICEF's response in the water, sanitation and hygiene sector (cluster).
The project aims to prevent massive outbreaks of communicable diseases associated with inadequate and unsafe water supplies, lack of sanitation facilities and poor hygiene practices for the flood affected population of 300.000 persons in Northern and Eastern Uganda.

During the recovery phase activities will focus on: providing safe water through rehabilitation and construction of water points; providing sanitation through construction and rehabilitation of latrines; capacity building for operation and maintenance of the facilities; and hygine promotion.
