Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Assessment for WASH SDGs


With urban growth in Indonesia averaging 4.4% a year (World Bank, 2016), a failure to invest in urban sanitation will become a barrier for almost any development. Access to sanitation is a human right and governments are the duty bearers of progressive realization of this right. With the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Indonesia's government has committed to work towards universal access to safely managed sanitation services and improved hygiene. Funded by SNV Netherlands, Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI) assessment was conducted to deepen understanding on gender and social inclusion issues and its implications for universal and sustainable WASH services in selected three cities; Bandar Lampung, Metro, and Tasikmalaya. During the WASH SDGs programme inception phase, SNV will conduct a Gender and Social Inclusion (GESI) assessment. The assessment is to deepen our understanding of gender and social inclusion issues and its implications for universal and sustainable WASH services in Bandar Lampung, Metro, and Tasikmalaya. This study used mixed of quantitative and qualitative approach.
