Working with Indigenous Peoples in Rural #Water & #Sanitation, a new report

Wed, 27Aug2014

By Infoandina http://ow.ly/ANJv3 #WATSAN

The joint Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) and UN Development Programme (UNDP) Water Governance Facility (WGF) released a report, titled ‘Working with Indigenous Peoples in Rural Water and Sanitation: Recommendations for an Intercultural Approach.’

The report aims to examine experiences from the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) Achievement Fund (MDG-F) adapting programmes to meet the needs of indigenous peoples in the context of the elaboration of future Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The report includes sections on: indigenous peoples’ access to water and sanitation services; fundamental principles of the intercultural approach; how to include the intercultural approach in the project cycle; a specific look at sanitation; and final considerations. The report identifies the intercultural approach to rural water supply and sanitation as a means of addressing challenges. It also outlines how to integrate this approach throughout project cycles.

The report is the outcome of a joint project of the WGF and the University of the Autonomous Regions of the Nicaraguan Caribbean Coast (URACCAN) titled ‘Transcultural Transparency in Water and Sanitation Management in Indigenous Communities.’  more
