SHA WASH Expert Group

Swiss Humanitarian Aid (SHA) WASH Expert Group  

The work of the specialists of the Water and Environmental Sanitation Expert Group includes groundwater abstraction and setting up or rehabilitating systems for the treatment, storage and distribution of water. They also deal with wastewater treatment and water quality testing. After a disaster, they conduct evaluations and take the necessary emergency measures in collaboration with the authorities of the affected country and partner organisations. An additional priority for the group is to train local staff. Members of this expert group have professional training and experience in the field of civil engineering, hydrogeology, chemistry, biology, physics and the environment.
