Abstract

There is a legal and political framework supporting the "Leave no one behind" principle: the rights to water and sanitation, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Related concepts are social inclusion and the participation ladder. Social exclusion and inequality in the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector manifest themselves at different geographical and social levels. The human rights framework defines the legal rights and responsibilities especially for states, while there are no legal binding obligations for non-state organisations. A conceptual framework for social inclusion In WASH programmes and the dilemmas and challenges involved in ensuring that no one is left behind are presented. A presentation for the IRC WASH Debate "Leaving no one behind; social inclusion in the WASH sector", held on 18 April 2018 in The Hague, the Netherlands. The presentation itself can be viewed on the Twitter livestream of the WASH Debate (starts/ends at: 04:50-22:10).
