This webinar explores how men and boys can be more meaningfully engaged in sanitation and hygiene processes to achieve sustainable behaviour change and a new social norms.
Whilst discussions around gender in sanitation and hygiene (and elsewhere) often focus on the roles, positions or impacts on women and girls, this webinar explored three questions with a specific focus on men and boys:
- How many and boys can be more meaningfully engaged in the sanitation and hygiene process to achieve sustainable behaviour change and a new social norms?
- What specific approaches and methods are needed and being used in different contexts to stop men and boys from practicing open defecation?
- What are the power dynamics, relationships and roles and responsibilities within households and communities when it comes to sanitation and hygiene, and do how these impact on long term sustainability?
