Achieving Gender Equality through WASH

The Sustainable Development Goals recognise water and sanitation as human rights and have set targets on ‘universal’ and ‘equitable’ access to water, sanitation and hygiene by 2030. This briefing shows that equitable and universal access cannot be achieved without specific gender equality measures in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) policy and programming to ensure that the rights of girls and women to water and sanitation are met.
