Taking Action to Achieve Inclusive WASH

Author: UNICEF, WaterAid, World Bank Group

Making water, sanitation and hygiene services available to everyone is at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals agenda, yet we are not on track to meet the SDG 6 goals. To accelerate progress, WASH practitioners, including national and local governments, water and sanitation utilities, public and private service providers, regulators, NGOs and community organizations, must understand and tackle the barriers that prevent vulnerable groups, including persons with disabilities, from accessing WASH services and contributing to the development process.

Through this introductory online course, learners will:

  • Increase their knowledge and understanding of persons with disabilities, disability-inclusive WASH.
  • Understand the barriers that persons with disabilities are facing to access WASH services and products, and how to identify and address these barriers.
  • Learn how to design, implement, monitor and evaluate disability-inclusive WASH programmes in development or humanitarian contexts.
