A lack of access to, or poorly designed, WASH services can increase vulnerabilities to violence. Staff working in the WASH sector may come across violence in their work but not be aware of what they can or should do about it. This paper introduces a review and learning process undertaken in 2013 to better understand the types of violence that can occur related to WASH and to identify good practices that can help WASH practitioners to contribute to reducing such vulnerabilities. It summarises the types of violence identified, highlights a few examples of good practice and provides linkages to the practitioner's toolkit produced as the main output of the learning and review process.
