Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Working on gender issues, especially using an approach that aims to transform harmful power dynamics will always be welcomed by some more than others. Here we list some potential challenges and unplanned consequences of using a gender transformative approach and ideas for how to overcome these.

These slides were created for the workshop ‘Gender Transformative WASH’ (April 2019) that the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) co-facilitated with Dr Sue Cavill for Plan International. The workshop was for Plan country-office staff from Ethiopia, Indonesia, Nepal, Uganda and Zambia implementing the ‘WASH SDG Programme’. Following the event, we felt the learnings and advice from the workshop could be useful to other practitioners.
