Rural sanitation and climate change: putting ideas into practice

Sharing of experiences and thoughts on addressing climate change impacts on sanitation at a local level are critical to evolving the sanitation sector. This publication aims to address these gaps in rural sanitation and hygiene thinking through: unpacking the reasons behind the limited progress towards addressing climate change in the sanitation and hygiene sector; exploring climate impacts on rural sanitation and hygiene practices; placing people, households, and communities at the centre of programming using participatory methods for learning; and providing actionable ideas to integrate climate thinking and learning into rural sanitation and hygiene programming at the household and community level.
