Abstract: This successful project developed delivery mechanisms for gender responsive water and sanitation services, and influenced regulatory and policy frameworks in East Africa (Kenya and Uganda). Given that women are traditionally responsible for provision of water and sanitation at the household level, but have no input into infrastructure design and policy, they are particularly affected by lack of services. Partnerships with WSUP, NETWAS and UN HABITAT contributed a great deal of success to the project. Water and sanitation development must be accompanied by adequate training and capacity building that ensures proper management and sustainability of any interventions.
