Achieving gender equality through WASH

GADN has partnered with WaterAid to produce a new briefing, Achieving gender equality through WASH.

This briefing shows that equitable and universal access cannot be achieved without specific gender equality measures in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) policy and programming to ensure that the rights of girls and women to water and sanitation are met.

The aim of the briefing is to set out the multiple links between gender equality and WASH to encourage dialogue, mutual understanding and consensus between gender equality and WASH policymakers and practitioners. Ideally a more detailed examination of the linkages through new research and innovative programme development will be carried out as a result.
