Coordinating the UN's work on water and sanitation

New guide on female-friendly toilets

‘Female-friendly guide’ for public and community toilets written by WaterAid, UNICEF and WSUP was published in October 2018.
The guide is designed primarily for use by local authorities in towns and cities who are in charge of public and community toilets. It’s also useful for national governments, public and private service providers, NGOs, donors and civil society organisations who play a role in delivering these services.

The guide suggests ways to increase gender sensitivity in town planning on sanitation. It draws the recommendations and practical steps from existing literature, expert opinion and analysis of pioneering experiences from around the world.
