Improving access to safe water and sanitation a global development priority, and yet limited attention has been paid to creating policies to ensure secure water, sanitation, and hygiene for unhoused (homeless) people, despite their growing numbers in industrialized countries and their exposure to water-related hazards and insecurities. This report takes stock of key findings and identifies trends and tactics to avoid in the creation of more just and equitable policies for universal water and sanitation provision.
