WSSCC Rapport Annuel 2012

WSSCC General
Événements marquants en 2012: Le Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement a franchi un seuil important : il a atteint un million de personnes. En effet, près d’1,4 million de personnes ont dorénavant accès à des toilettes améliorées grâce à des programmes nationaux financés par le Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement quipromeuvent les changements de comportements, le lavage des mains et la coordination à l’échelle des pays. Le WSSCC joue un rôle prépondérant dans ce secteur au niveau mondial, notamment de par sa participation active à un certain nombre d’initiatives capitales telles que « Assainissement et eau pour tous » (Sanitation and Water for All) et le Nirmal Bharat Yatra. L’ensemble des travaux du WSSCC ont été marqués par deux des axes thématiques essentiels du savoir et du plaidoyer, en l’occurrence l’équité et l’inclusion, surtout au cours des négociations concernant les cibles et objectifs pour l’après-2015 et de divers séminaires, conférences et ateliers tels que ceux qu’a organisés le Programme commun OMS/UNICEF de suivi de l’approvisionnement en eau et de l’assainissement.

Equity and Inclusion in Sanitation and Hygiene in South Asia – A Regional Synthesis Paper

There are two facets to the problem in South Asia, both of which are unacceptable. The first is a problem of scale: 716 million men, women, and children defecate in the open every day in South Asia, especially in rural areas: a veritable sanitation crisis that impairs progress in the region. Many districts in India, Nepal, and Pakistan fall in this category. The second, and in many ways more pernicious problem, particularly in South Asia, is one of exclusion, where different categories of people are not able to access and use safe sanitation facilities. These categories of people include those who are socially and economically marginalized or excluded, and those who cannot use standard designs. This catalytic working paper, including a bibliography, was developed for the Technical Session during the 4th South Asian Conference on Sanitation (SACOSAN IV) Reaching the Unserved: Equity and Inclusion in South Asia. It is intended for discussion leading to collaborative action.
