Working towards WASH equality in Cambodia
A recently published report by ISF's International Development team synthesises studies related to gender equality in water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) enterprises in Cambodia, bringing together recommendations for a more inclusive WASH sector.
To develop the report, Melita Grant and Simone Soeters reviewed a collection of recent studies and project evaluations from Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) working with women in WASH enterprises in Cambodia, among them our long-term partners East Meets West Cambodia, as well as iDE, SHE Enterprises, and WaterSHED.
This project was funded by the Water for Women program of the Australian Government, and will help to share the learnings of how to support WASH businesses and small scale enterprises more inclusive, as well as to inform civil society organisations (CSOs), donors and government agencies working with WASH entrepreneurs.
While showcasing an increasing number of opportunities for small-scale enterprise in WASH, as part of a broader approach to achieving SDG 6 of the Sustainable Development Goals, this report is the first of its kind to bring together evidence related to how to ensure these opportunities are available to all, and in ways that challenge inequalities.
