Gender Issues in Water and Sanitation Programmes


by Aidan A Cronin, Pradeep K Mehta, Anjal Prakash, SAGE Publications, January 2015

Exclusion and inequitable access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services and opportunities are major concerns to development practitioners. The job of providing water for the household invariably falls on women, often at the expense of their education, income-earning opportunities and social, cultural and political involvement.

This book aims to unpack the key elements of the WASH–gender nexus, examine these and recommend ways ahead for improved gender outcomes and WASH impact in India.
