Learning Brief - Sanitation and social empowerment

Homeless International
June 2012

In our second learning brief, which also reflects on our multi-country project, Water and sanitation provision for the urban poor in Malawi, Tanzania and Zimbabwe, we examine the relationship between water and sanitation and empowerment. The learning brief explores how community-led water and sanitation provision supports and creates opportunities for social empowerment as well as how it could hinder empowerment.
