Transformative WASH for climate resilience - a toolkit

An inclusive community is an essential building block of climate resilience. In an uncertain and rapidly changing world, there is no greater priority than ensuring that water and WASH systems are future-proofed for climate resilience, social cohesion, accountability and wellbeing. 

Pro-actively supporting the voices of women, First Nations and marginalised people from communities in water and WASH systems is one of the most effective pathways towards a more climate resilient world. 

In order to achieve water and sanitation for all by 2030, we must:

  • Accelerate gender equality

  • Accelerate equitable systems change

  • Accelerate social norms change

Transformation starts with you. We have gathered together key resources for water and WASH practitioners that can help you deliver transformative WASH programming with an explicit focus on supporting local communities and institutions to shift harmful norms that exclude the diverse voices of women, people with disabilities and marginalised groups.
