Cadrage et diagnostic de l’approche du Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement sur l’égalité et la non-discrimination: Résumé analytique, études de cas et réflexions.In 2016, WSSCC’s Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) recruited an independent team of experts to undertake an in-depth two-part diagnosis of GSF’s approach to equality and non-discrimination (EQND). The first part of the diagnosis – an assessment comprising of visits to six countries (Ethiopia, Malawi, Nepal, Nigeria, Senegal and Togo) and a review of documentation across all GSF-supported programmes – was completed in 2017, resulting in this study. While confirming that many people who may be considered disadvantaged have benefitted positively from GSF-supported programmes, the study emphasizes that more proactive attention is needed to ensure no one is left behind. Several recommendations are offered to better integrate EQND throughout the components and stages of all GSF-supported programmes.Summarized version of the study, including the Executive Summary, selected case studies and GSF reflections.Cadrage et diagnostic de l’approche du Fonds mondial pour l’assainissement sur l’égalité et la non-discrimination: Résumé analytique, études de cas et réflexions.Annexes related to the study.
