Integrating the human right to sanitation in Burkina Faso : improving women’s access to sanitation in Burkina Faso’s rural areas

In present-day Burkina Faso, there is an immense backlog in sanitation services in rural areas. One of the main consequences is the absence of latrines at the household level, resulting in a situation in which the great majority of the country's rural population resorts to open defecation on a daily basis. In the quest towards achieving universal and sustainable sanitation services for all, this qualitative research explores how the integration of sanitation as a human right in national policies and strategies can improve access to sanitation in rural areas, in particular for the country's most socially and geographically marginalised group: Burkina Faso's women living in rural areas.

Abstract

In present-day Burkina Faso, there is an immense backlog in sanitation services in rural areas. One of the main consequences is the absence of latrines at the household level, resulting in a situation in which the great majority of the country's rural population resorts to open defecation on a daily basis. In the quest towards achieving universal and sustainable sanitation services for all, this qualitative research explores how the integration of sanitation as a human right in national policies and strategies can improve access to sanitation in rural areas, in particular for the country's most socially and geographically marginalised group: Burkina Faso's women living in rural areas.
