WASH: Improving Provision for Urban Children

Inadequate WASH provision, detrimental to all residents, poses particular challenges for the health and safety of children and even for their long-term development. This briefing highlights the problems related to urban WASH access and presents research findings on the impact on children of different ages, especially young children and adolescent girls. Building on promising practices and lessons learnt, this briefing also includes suggestions by the authors for NGOs for supporting improved access to WASH and hence living conditions for children in urban contexts.
