BMGF-WSH Webinar: Gender in the Sanitation Value Chain

On February 27, 2018, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Team (BMGF-WSH) held a webinar to present the findings of the report, Gender in the Sanitation Value Chain: A Review of the Evidence. This report seeks to uncover the evidence on gender differences in the sanitation value chain to show why gender matters across this sector. It includes an assessment of gender differences in sanitation use and maintenance and in participation in the sanitation sector and marketplace.

The webinar provided the following:

  • An update on the steps we have taken at the foundation to build our gender capacity internally;
  • A look at where the foundation’s gender equality strategy is going; 
  • A deep dive into evidence; and
  • Examples of how gender affects sanitation, based on an evidence review conducted by the WSH and Gender Equality teams in 2017.
