Closing the Gender gap in Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene - Programme Guidance

This programme guide is intended to support humanitarian staff primarily working in the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector in South Sudan to actively prepare and encourage more women to enter the WASH sector at all levels – community, technical and leadership. The recommendations, checklists and matrixes contain information about how to break down the current barriers and create, and maintain, an enabling environment for women’s participation and leadership. All the tools and recommendations within this document are based on the research findings from the Gender Gap in WASH Research 2019. The research was conducted by IOM and RedR UK, and included a desktop review and field research to explore the gender gap in women’s participation in the WASH sector. The research was funded by the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) and endorsed by the South Sudan WASH Cluster and gender-based violence (GBV) Sub- Cluster.
