Key resource: Retrofitting: The Next Step for the Swachh Bharat Mission?

Retrofitting of toilets is a complex and challenging stream of work and is included as one of the main components of Open Defecation Free-Sustainability (ODF-S) plans under Swachh Bharat Mission- Gramin (SBM-G) (clean India mission - rural). However, minimal data is available about the number of toilets that need to be retrofitted. Furthermore, the typologies of retrofitting needs are largely unclear. Few surveys have been carried out to date, and those that do exist provide conflicting or incomplete data.

Key resource: Frontiers 14: Tackling Slippage

There is widespread recognition that slippage of open defecation free (ODF) status is a challenge to sustainability across many programmes and contexts. Much has been written about how Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) and other sanitation programmes can be set up for sustainability in order to prevent slippage from happening but there is little documented evidence on how slippage can be reversed.

Men and Boys Learning Brief French

Les débats sur le genre dans les programmes d’assainissement et d’hygiène (A&H) se concentrent souvent sur les rôles, les positions ou les impacts exercés sur les femmes et les filles, qui supportent l’essentiel de la charge de travail liée à l’eau, l’assainissement et l’hygiène (EAH). Les efforts déployés pour améliorer l’A&H et modifier les normes sociales ne mobilisent pas toujours activement les hommes et les garçons de la manière la plus efficace ou la plus transformationnelle.

Portuguese Learning Brief Boys and Men

As discussões sobre género em saneamento e higiene (S&H) centram-se geralmente nos papéis, posições ou impactos nas mulheres e raparigas, a quem cabe a maior carga de trabalho relacionada com água, saneamento e higiene (water, sanitation & hygiene, WASH). Os esforços para melhorar o S&H e mudar as normas sociais nem sempre envolvem activamente homens e rapazes da maneira mais eficaz ou transformadora.

Fronteiras12

Para se alcançar um saneamento universal gerido com segurança em toda a África até 2030, a escala e o ritmo terão de aumentar drasticamente. A comunidade africana de saneamento volta agora a reunir-se para o AfricaSan5 e esperamos que esta oportunidade seja aproveitada para reactualizar os compromissos para com aqueles que ainda não vêem respeitado o seu direito humano fundamental de acesso a instalações de saneamento e higiene.

In order to achieve universal safely managed sanitation across Africa by 2030 the scale and pace will need to increase drastically. As the African sanitation community reassemble for AfricaSan 5 we hope the opportunity is grasped to rejuvenate commitments to those who still lack the fundamental human right of access to sanitation and hygiene facilities.

Key resource: Fronteiras Edição 11: Envolver homens e rapazes em programas de saneamento e higiene

As discussões de género em S&H centram-se geralmente nos papéis, posições ou impactos nas mulheres e raparigas. Esse enfoque é essencial para melhorar os resultados de género em Água, Saneamento e Higiene (WASH), já que é sobre as mulheres e as raparigas que recai a parte maior parte do fardo do trabalho de WASH e são, apesar disso, frequentemente excluídas da planificação, execução e monitoria das actividades comunitárias de WASH, por terem menos poder, recursos, tempo e estatuto social que seus os pares masculinos.

Key resource: Learning Brief: Men and Boys in Sanitation

Discussions of gender in sanitation and hygiene (S&H) often focus on the roles, positions or impacts on women and girls, who bear the greatest burden of work related to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). Efforts to improve S&H and change social norms do not always actively engage men and boys in the most effective or transformative way. We must learn more about the roles men and boys actually play and – if necessary – how they can be modified to make efforts more successful.
