New resources on sanitation, climate change, and gender and social inclusion

Hi All,

ISF-UTS, in partnership with Plan International, has developed practitioner-friendly outputs to address climate change impacts on inclusive, rural sanitation.

A guidance note , designed closely with Plan International Indonesia field staff, outlines easy-to-implement community-based activities to get local stakeholders thinking about how people are affected differently by climate impacts on rural sanitation, and how gender and social inclusion in sanitation builds climate resilience.

A case study of rural Indonesia sheds light on the experiences of community members with climate impacts on sanitation. The case study demonstrates the way gender, and social norms and structures shape how people feel about and respond to climate change.

Finally, our learning paper explains interconnected key concepts: gender and social inclusion, WASH, and climate change, and how these informed the research behind these outputs.

ISF-UTS, in partnership with WaterAid Timor-Leste, also produced a guidance note and case study that focuses on climate change impacts on rural water.

More information on the project is available at  waterforwomen.uts.edu.au/climate-change-response/ .

Regards,
Jeremy
