This policy brief provides an overview and key findings of the Empowerment in WASH study in Banfora, Burkina Faso and presents recommendations drawn from dissemination workshops held at district level. It is primarily based on the Stockholm Environment Institute, (2018). Étude pilote pour l'élaboration de « Empowerment in WASH Index » dans la Commune de Banfora, Région des Cascades au Burkina Faso. Technical Report and on discussions at dissemination workshops in Banfora, Burkina Faso. The Empowerment in WASH Index (EWI) is an assessment and monitoring tool - developed by SEI and Queens University, in collaboration with IRC and piloted in Burkina Faso and Ghana - that aims to close the evidence gap on the links between WASH interventions and the empowerment and well-being of individuals. Challenges identified by EWI go beyond infrastructure-oriented solutions and address more structural (e.g. social norms, governance systems) changes. The EWI study was funded by an Accelerated grant provided by the REACH programme, which is itself funded by UK aid from the UK Department for International Development (DFID)


L’indice d’Empowerment dans l’AEPHA était piloté dans la commune de Banfora, pour combler le manque d’information sur le degré d’inclusion des hommes et des femmes dans les prises de décisions liées à l’AEPHA. Cette note politique fournit une vue d’ensemble de l’étude pilote sur la construction de l’indice et présente les conclusions de l’étude, ainsi que les recommandations issues de l’atelier de dissémination des résultats, tenu en présence des acteurs-clés de la commune de Banfora.
