    Dear Daniel,
    Thank you for sharing your experiences and thoughts on this. It is very interesting how powerful language – wording can be, as you pointed out re equality.
    Best,

    Dear Lilliana and classmates,

    Thank you Dannyogwo and Leonardo for your comprehensive and valuable inputs to our forum. it is very inspiring to see you two as our male champions in gender equality!

    I would like to add a few points in complementing to the points you made. One being that we may have to consider a step back to think and implement…[Read more]

    Thank you Dannyogwo for setting up the stage for discussion so nicely. In addition to the four points you identified being gender issues identified in the project, I would like to add that an increase in men understanding about the need to involve women in the process could also be another point here.

    I think the statement about 30% is a good…[Read more]

    Hi Shaila,

    I have one question from the reading. Could you please give some examples about micro-level qualitative and quantitative sex disaggregated data in water and sanitation?

    Dear everyone,

    I would like to share with you the tool that Oxfam has developed. Though it does not particulary focus on water supply, I found the tool is quite useful to get the conversation started with those who would like to know “how” to do gender impact assessment. If you have further questions please get in touch.

    You can access the…[Read more]

    Dear Anamika,
    I could not agree more with you that we have to start from ourselves. It is the hardest thing to do and also a very powerful thing as well. Often it is easier to point fingers to someone else because an honest reflection of ourselves can be very scary to accept. Thanks Anamika, the course has certainly widen my perspectives.…[Read more]

    Hi Shaila and classmates, I think as a marketing tool, this video doesnt convince me to want to know more about them or to donate. The slogan “toilets for all” is catchy but the video doesnt quite give that inclusive message. Sanitation links to health, education, livelihoods and quality of lives in general. Interestingly, the impact of lack of…[Read more]

    Hi everyone,

    Sorry for a late contribution. In Laos, water supply in the main cities are operated using public-private partnership model. The cost of the water is hardly anything and when the price goes up even just for a little, there is massive complaint while it doesnt seem to be the case with electricity bill. In terms of gender, it has…[Read more]

    Dear Stephanie and Roma,

    I can feel the passion coming out of your writing! Thank you for sharing. Roma, you mentioned a very interesting point about why wouldnt government care when they would be the one dealing with the affected people. What I have noticed in Mekong region, one reason would be that whether or not they look after the welfare or…[Read more]

  • Dear Joke,

    Thank you very much for your reply to my long questions.

    Best, Vanh

  • Oh it works, sorry 🙂 but not the edit button.

  • Dear Anamika,

    Thank you greatly for your inputs and clarification to Question 1 ,highly appreciated. Regarding theory of change, I found it challenging to use. I often like to use problem tree to help me understand the situation and the root of the problems.

    Regards,

    Vanh

    P.S I cannt reply directly to you, so I have to used this window instead.

  • I have no suggestions on your question Klas sorry. In my current work we are also thinking about how to link what we do with SDGs and their indicators, I am looking forward to hearing what other colleagues/course facilitators and coordinators/classmates here have experienced, this would be very valuable for my current challenge.

    I have some…[Read more]
