Towards Inclusive WASH: Sharing evidence and experience from the field, 2012

WaterAid Australia.  This new publication is a record of the WASH sector’s efforts to achieve equity and inclusion in programming around the world. The publication includes one keynote paper by Hazel Jones (WEDC) and Louisa Gosling (WaterAid UK) and 16 case studies from a wide range of organisations in 13 countries and with examples from urban, rural and school WASH programming.
The case studies provide stories of policy, technology and process innovations through four lenses: Poorest of the poor, Living with HIV and AIDS, Disability and Gender.
We hope that this publication can provide some inspiration for development practitioners around the world who want to build equity and inclusion into their WASH programming and also for those who aspire to incorporate water, sanitation and hygiene outcomes into their programming in the HIV, disability or other sectors.
The publication and all supporting materials are now available online.

Towards Inclusive WASH Report 
A free learning portal for WASH practitioners and researchers
Led by WaterAid in Australia, in collaboration with the WASH Reference Group, this website is an ongoing learning project which aims to provide practical skills and evidence to support practitioners’ implementation of WASH projects in and equitable and inclusive way.
The project brings together experience and expertise to address the WASH needs of people through different social inclusion ‘lenses’: gender, disability, HIV and AIDs and other grounds for exclusion such as age, religion or ethnic minority.
On this site you will find reference material, practical tools, case studies, webinars and archived forums. In the future, the website will include open source study materials focussed on Equity and Inclusion in the WASH sector. Please contact if you would like to upload and share materials through this site.
This learning project has been generously funded by AusAID.
