Sectoral Perspectives on Gender and Social Inclusion: Water Supply and Sanitation

Publication | December 2012

The provision of water supply and sanitation services needs to move beyond technical solutions towards a more gendered and inclusive approach.

This publication assesses the current situation of gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) in Nepal's water supply and sanitation (WSS) sector. It identifies the barriers faced by different groups in accessing WSS services and how the various policies, sector modalities, and project mechanisms have worked to address them.
