Learning Brief: 'Do No Harm’ for inclusive WASH: working towards a shared understanding


The Water for Women Fund sees an intentional focus on ‘Do No Harm’ (DNH) approaches as a critical way of supporting an ethical approach to inclusion. This includes addressing the risk of backlash that comes with supporting representation and decision-making of women and marginalised groups to ensure that no one is left behind in WASH programming. The Fund aims to sharpen collective understanding and practice of DNH as a focus for learning as part of strengthening ‘inclusive WASH’.  

This Learning Brief, 'Do No Harm’ for inclusive WASH: working towards a shared understanding’ aims to advance the Fund’s collective learning on these issues by reflecting on the discussions throughout the Systems Strengthening for Inclusive WASH learning event held in December 2019 in Nepal, through the lens of these DNH dimensions.

This Learning Brief was authored by Di Kilsby, Gender and Social Inclusion Consultant to the Water for Women Fund.  Thanks to Joanna Mott and Kate Orr for contribution to this Brief.
