Social exclusion due to lifestyle or livelihood – such – nomadic, semi-nomadic and seasonally mobile communities – also present a particular challenge to sanitation programmes. Many of these groups practice open defecation, at least partially, and often out of necessity.
Temporary labourers can work away from home for large amounts of the year, or whole communities can move between areas according to the season. These specific population groups present challenges to sanitation programmes and should be identified, with specific strategies developed wherever needed.
We have been working on practitioner voices stories on challenging contexts, including stories on lifestyles and livelihoods.
