Violence, Gender and WASH Toolkit launched

falseAlthough the lack of access to appropriate sanitation, hygiene and water services is not the root cause of violence, it can lead to increased vulnerabilities to violence of varying forms, with incidences reported from a wide range of contexts. In response, the SHARE Research Consortium has developed a toolkit designed to help practitioners to better recognise the risks of violence linked to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and provide guidance on what WASH practitioners can do to reduce these vulnerabilities to violence. This practitioner’s toolkit, funded by DFID, focuses on increasing understanding of the scale and specific nature of the problem. The toolkit has been developed by Sarah House, Suzanne Ferron, Dr Marni Sommer and Sue Cavill, with contributions from a wide range of actors. Co-published by 27 organisations, the toolkit brings together evidence, best practice, tools and policy responses to help make WASH safer and more effective – particularly for women and girls and people from marginalised groups.
