Abstract: In the post-emergency context, economic revitalization is a key factor for any response. Therefore, demand-driven interventions that promote sustainable livelihoods should be favoured. This case study from Afghanistan illustrates effective emergency WASH response using demand-driven methods in a post conflict setting. Resources were invested in promotion and marketing of household-level water and sanitation interventions. At the same time, artisans were trained and livelihoods were developed to meet the new demand for household water filters and latrines. This approach has created sustainable livelihoods for many artisans while also addressing health issues relating to water quality and sanitation.
