Understanding and Addressing Equality, Non-Discrimination and Inclusion in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)


WaterAid is determined to make clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene normal for everyone, everywhere within a generation. To make this happen, they have set the strategic aim to "tackle and challenge the inequalities that prevent poor and marginalized people from realizing their rights to safe water, sanitation and hygiene."

This resource provides practical guidance and support on reducing inequalities in programming and advocacy work. It introduces the most important equality, non-discrimination and inclusion principles and follows them up with practical activities, tools and checklists for you to apply to working with partners and communities. With so much attention now being focused on equitable and sustainable development there has never been a better opportunity to put equality, non-discrimination and inclusion at the heart of our work. Although this resource focuses on WASH, many of the principles and activities are equally relevant to other sectors of development. Clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene impact on all areas of life and all human rights.
