Addressing Gender Equality and Social Inclusion in Urban Sanitation Projects
Publication | November 2021
This guidance note underscores why addressing gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) is fundamental to the success of citywide inclusive sanitation (CWIS) project success.
Equity and inclusion is one of the four elements of CWIS. As such, CWIS projects need activities to target specific unserved and underserved groups, including women and children, ethnic minorities, the urban poor, and persons with disabilities. This guidance note is part of a series that aims to share essential knowledge to embed CWIS principles in planning and delivering sanitation services to ADB developing member countries. These learning materials were prepared by ADB’s Water Sector Group and structured along the ADB project processing cycle.
