Abstract:
The estimated 2.4 billion of people globally still lack access to an improved sanitation facility. A sanitation target was included but not achieved in the MDGs, and the subsequent SDGs include an ambitious target to eliminate open defecation worldwide and ensure the entire world population has access to adequate sanitation by 2030. This project will focus specifically on factors and processes underlying the sustainability of sanitation behaviour change in low- and middle-income countries. It will adopt a contextually-sensitive perspective to investigate sanitation dynamics within a broader WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) nexus. It has an ambition to bridge two distinct perspectives in current sanitation research including the focus on micro-level behavioural and infrastructural determinants (predominant in public-health research) and on the structural political-economy and political-ecology drivers of sanitation change (as in recent critical sanitation research). The research will consist of both field research following up on our previous work in India and Ethiopia and desk research including work on projects’ proposals and reviews. Candidates with strong interdisciplinary capabilities eager to combine social- and environmental-science approaches and methodologies are particularly welcome.
