Our Engagement in Niger


In Niger,  gender disparities in WASH are strong, and WASH programming does not always account for gender. For this reason, Niger was one of the pilot countries under the Joint Programme on Gender Hygiene and Sanitation.
 
The programme, implemented from 2014 to 2018 also in Senegal and Cameroon, supported governments in the formulation of evidence-based and inclusive policies to address the fulfilment of women’s and girls’ human rights to water and sanitation.
