Key resource: Taking Swachh Bharat Mission to the next level: Insights from an immersive research on inclusion, toilet usage and hygiene behaviours

An immersive research was conducted by WaterAid India (WAI) in collaboration with Institute of Development Studies (IDS) covering nine villages across the states of Andhra Pradesh (AP), Uttar Pradesh (UP), Chhattisgarh and Odisha. Each research team stayed in a village for 2-3 nights and gained insights on inclusion, toilet usage and hygiene behaviours and other critical areas of sanitation.

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: Frontières Numéro 13: Mécanismes de soutien pour renforcer l’égalité et la non-discrimination (EQND) dans l’assainissement rural (2e partie/2)

Un nouvel accent mis sur l’équité est actuellement piloté par le cadre des droits humains à l’eau et l’assainissement et par l’Objectif de développement durable 6.2, qui souligne l’importance d’un assainissement acceptable et équitable pour tous. Pour garantir des résultats équitables, on prête une attention accrue aux mécanismes de soutien qui s’inscrivent en complément des processus classiques de création de la demande, de changement de comportement, de responsabilisation de la communauté et d’action communautaire.

Key resource: Fronteiras Edição 13: Apoio a mecanismos de reforço da Igualdade e Não-Discriminação (IGND) no saneamento rural (Parte 2 de 2)

Está a haver um enfoque renovado na equidade impulsionado pelo quadro dos Direitos Humanos à Água e ao Saneamento e pelo Objectivo de Desenvolvimento Sustentável 6.2, que sublinham a importância de um saneamento adequado e equitativo para todos. Para garantir resultados equitativos, está a dar-se cada vez mais atenção a mecanismos de apoio suplementares que complementam os processos convencionais de criação de procura, mudança de comportamento, empoderamento da comunidade e acção comunitária. Embora a ideia de mecanismos suplementares de apoio ao CLTS não seja nova (Papafilippou et al.

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.

Key resource: Frontiers 13: Support mechanisms to strengthen equality and non-discrimination (EQND) in rural sanitation (Part 2 of 2)

Achievement of adequate and equitable access to sanitation for all, and an end to open defecation, requires that special attention is given toward disadvantaged groups. It has become apparent that the benefits of conventional rural sanitation programming and service delivery are often not spread equally, and risk leaving disadvantaged groups behind. This issue of Frontiers of CLTS (the second in a two-part series) examines the potential of support mechanisms designed to help disadvantaged groups access and use hygienic toilets in driving more equitable rural sanitation outcomes.

Key resource: Les hommes et les garçons dans l’assainissement (note d'apprentissage)

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.
