5 things you should learn from implementing a rural sanitation project in Cambodia

Global Sanitation Fund

The Cambodia Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Programme (CRSHIP), supported by the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF), works to increase sustained access to improved sanitation and promote good hygiene practices in rural communities. Plan International USA reviewed the programming experience within the Cambodia Rural Sanitation and Hygiene Improvement Program and developed this synthesis of insights, based on an array of programme and performance-related reports released during the first three years of the programme. This review is designed to assist local advocacy efforts to bring Community-Led Total Sanitation (CLTS) to scale and share emerging themes and lessons learned to date from programming experience of relevance to other implementing actors in the WASH sector.

For Her : it’s the big issue – putting women at the centre of water supply, sanitation and hygiene

Equality

This report is a collection of evidence, brief examples highlighting the effect and benefits of placing women at the core of planning, implementation and operations of Water Sanitation Hygiene (WASH) programmes. It is is organized around six Big Issues: Better services for all; Better health for all; Privacy and dignity; Women's health and well-being; Girls' school attendance; Women's status; and Income-generation. The experiences also show how women's empowerment and the improvement of water supply, sanitation facilities and hygiene practice are inextricably linked. One cannot be successfully achieved without the other. The report provides further proof that if women play a central role in water, sanitation and hygiene efforts, progress towards achieving all the Millennium Development Goals will be significantly advanced. The evidence comes from a variety of sources, some of it from recent literature, project reports and evaluations and some from personal correspondence with those involved, where changes are currently happening but not yet documented.
