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.

Key resource: Homens e rapazes no saneamento (nota de reflexão )

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.

Key resource: Innovations pour l’assainissement urbain: Adapter les approches pilotées par la communauté

Plus de la moitié des occupants de la planète habitent désormais en milieu urbain et une forte proportion d'entre eux vit sans assainissement amélioré. Dans les zones rurales, les efforts déployés pour lutter contre la défécation en plein air ont été dirigés par le mouvement de l'Assainissement total piloté par la communauté (ATPC). Toutefois, comment les techniques de mobilisation de la communauté prônées par l'ATPC peuvent-elles être adaptées aux situations plus complexes des zones urbaines ?

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.

Key resource: Men and boys in sanitation and hygiene: A desk-based review

This desk review explores existing literature and examples of men’s and boys’ behaviours and gender roles in sanitation and hygiene (S&H) and the extent to which the engagement of men and boys in S&H processes is leading to sustainable and transformative change in households and communities. We developed an analytical framework for the review clustered around 3 areas: with men as objects to change, agents of change and partners for change.

Key resource: Engaging men and boys in sanitation and hygiene programmes

Discussions of gender in sanitation and hygiene often focus on the roles, positions or impacts on women and girls. Such a focus is critical to improving the gendered outcomes in Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), as women and girls bear the greatest burden of WASH work yet are often excluded from planning, delivery and monitoring community WASH activities as a result of having less power, resources, time and status than their male peers. However, current efforts to improve sanitation and change social norms may not always actively engage men and boys in the most effective way.
