Workshop: Share the Power: progressing inclusion of marginalised people in WASH through “not being neutral’
During the WASH and COVID-19 Pandemic Online Symposium, World Vision Australia, Edge Effect Australia and partners, supported by the Water for Women Fund, convened a workshop on COVID-19 and WASH inclusion.
WASH projects, support, and assistance provided as part of the pandemic response have the opportunity to remove barriers for people with disability and SGM people.
Many development actors have commentated that these barriers have not been acknowledged or addressed during ‘normal’, pre-pandemic times, and are now being compounded during COVID-19.
This session focussed on how development practitioners must never be neutral when it comes to inclusion of SGM people and people with disability, and how they can use these extraordinary times to shift the power.
