This assessment has been written by Sida's Helpdesk for Environment and Climate change on the request of the regional team at the Embassy of Sweden in Nairobi. The focus was to investigate RBO effectiveness with a particular focus on the role of development partners.
This seminar report has been compiled by Sida’s Helpdesk for Environment and Climate Change. The purpose of the seminar which took place in 2014 at Sida headquarters in Stockholm was to raise awareness about the taboos and difficulties surrounding sanitation specifically as it relates to health and girls’ and women’s menstrual hygiene. The meeting was also a starting point to stimulate dialogue within Sida and among external actors about the relevance of sanitation and hygiene for women’s and children’s health and gender equity, and how Sida and Swedish actors can contribute to breaking oppressive taboos and improve access to adequate sanitation. If we can’t talk about these issues – how can we be relevant development partners?
