Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Policy (French)

This document is a revised version of the 1st edition of the ACF WASH policy paper issued in 2006 and takes into account numerous internal and external developments within the sector, as well as various comments and suggestions recieved since then. Its aim is to: establish ACF's position; lay down a standard approach and; define the guiding principles, among other things. 

Interactions of: Malnutrition, Water Sanitation and Hygiene, Infections (French)

Drinking water, and more generally "domestic" water (including water necessary for hygiene and sanitation practices), is often a source of disease because of its poor quality (it can contain bacteria, viruses, parasites as well as chemical agents) and its scarcity. Inadequate sanitary conditions lead to the death of 1.5 million children each year worldwide, with 88% of these deaths due to diarrhoea.

Food Security and Livelihoods Assessments: A Practical Guide for Field Workers (French)

This publication guides field workers on how to implement specific aspects of different food security and livelihood programs. Based on Action Against Hunger’s experiences and investigations over the past 10 years in the field, this manual highlights technical tools and intervention principles that can be implemented in various projects.

Implementing cash-based interventions: A guideline for aid workers (French)

A growing body of experience and literature shows an interest in alternatives to in-kind distributions, where people are given cash or vouchers instead, which they use to acquire the items they need. In this manual, these are broadly called "cash-based interventions". ACF has been implementing food security projects for more than 25 years and have included some cash-based interventions but these have been limited in number relative to other food security interventions. The purpose of this module is to provide ACF with a practical guide for implementing cash-based interventions. 

Identification of vulnerable people in urban environments: Assessment of sustainable livelihoods and urban vulnerabilities (French)

This methodological guide is designed for use by field practitioners, and was conceived in response to several problems: proliferation of food crises in urban environments; difficulty targeting the most vulnerable population among all those affected by urban poverty; breakdown of social structures; and official betrayal or non recognition of disaffected neighborhoods.

Income generating activities: A key concept in sustainable food security (French)

Income generation can help to overcome food insecurity when economic factors are a fundamental cause of food insecurity and when food is available in local markets but lack of money is the main difficulty faced by the vulnerable population. This book is about income generating activities, and the principles and methodologies of this line of intervention that the ACF food security teams have been developing during the last few years on the field.
