The Canadian water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector welcomes Canada’s new Feminist International Assistance Policy, a bold rights-based framework to guide Canada’s international development efforts that places gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls at the heart of poverty reduction. Based on the contributions of 17 organizations and individuals, this position paper presents the business case for WASH as a critical pathway to realizing the ambitions of Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy. It draws on examples from the WASH sector and demonstrates how the sector takes an evidence-based, innovative, gendered
and rights-based approach to transforming the lives of women and girls, and the communities in which they live.
