Key resource: Apoiar os Menos Capazes ao Longo do CLTS e Depois do CLTS

Desde a sua concepção em 1999, o sistema de Saneamento Total Liderado pela Comunidade (Community-Led Total Sanitation, CLTS) alargou-se a mais de 60 países e o resultado foi que milhões de pessoas em todo o mundo passaram a viver em comunidades Livres de Fecalismo a Céu Aberto (Open Defecation Free, ODF). A abordagem afastava- -se dos programas de saneamento assentes em subsídios, que muitas vezes levavam a uma adopção desigual e a um uso parcial desse mesmo saneamento.

Achieving sustainability in WASH research and programming

Poster: Transgender-inclusive sanitation: Insights from South Asia

The WASH sector is focusing upon the 2030 global ambition of achieving universal access to adequate and equitable sanitation and hygiene for all by 2030. But the needs of transgender people, however, have so far been neglected: ‘the use of public bathrooms, which are often sex -segregated, has been associated with exclusion, denial of access, verbal harassment, physical abuse and sometimes even the arrest of transgender and intersex individuals’ - Catarina de Albuquerque.

In this workshop, participants identified the ‘Last Mile’ in East and Southern Africa as populations with:
