Water and sanitation
If a water source becomes contaminated, it can quickly become a medical crisis. Water and sanitation specialists are responsible for the design and management of water and sanitation projects. Water projects can range from setting up clean water sources in refugee camps to managing the emergency provision of drinking water after a natural disaster.
Sanitation work could involve appropriately sitting and building latrines or taking care of waste management in a hospital.
