Join the Rejuvenate project for a virtual event to discuss, how does gender intersect with child/youth rights and participation?
A large part of the Sanitation Learning Hub’s (SLH) work is around research and learning to support gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) in sanitation and hygiene programming. This includes using and promoting gender transformative sanitation approaches and ‘Leave No One Behind’ policies and programmes: this keeps the focus on the poorest, most marginalised and hardest to reach households and communities.
Has the pandemic allowed for more participation in important spaces by children and youth?
Or have those spaces become less participatory with digital, financial, and geographical divides?
It has been a long-standing goal of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) professionals to improve the health and lives of children. The health consequences from insufficient access to WASH are wide reaching and impact a range of diseases, infections and other concerns. It is well accepted that WASH is a critical determinant of child health and development.
The Sanitation Learning Hub is looking to capture country level and regional experiences, ideas, challenges and innovations from sanitation and hygiene practitioners through a series of blogs or short recordings.
Join the Sanitation Learning Hub for a webinar on climate change and rural sanitation – putting ideas into practice.

The climate crisis is a water crisis, and broad partnerships are needed to tackle both. To help bridge the gap between the 2019 and 2021 World Water Weeks, WWWeek At Home will bring together convenor-hosted, virtual adaptations of sessions on water and climate change originally destined for World Water Week 2020.
With water and climate both being high on the UK’s agenda, this event will highlight the global water crisis and the UK's response in the context of climate change and Covid-19.
In the context of the Covid-19 pandemic, cash-strapped governments across Africa will be looking for ways to fill revenue gaps. Having long faced challenges in taxing large multinational corporations and significant informal economic activities, they may be tempted to raise much-needed revenue relatively easily by imposing taxes on rapidly growing digital financial services, particularly mobile money. However, increasing mobile money usage across the continent has the potential to expand financial inclusion.
The Partnership for Economic Policy (PEP) has launched a new call for project proposals on the theme of Climate change in Sub-Saharan Africa: The impacts and responses for women and girls.
This initiative aims to produce the evidence that local and national policymakers need to inform specific policy interventions for:
Join the Coalition for Religious Equality and Inclusive Development (CREID) online to hear from UK Special Envoy on FoRB and our international panel of experts discuss religious inequalities and Covid-19.
Following the global commodities boom, investment has poured into large-scale extractive, green energy and other resource development projects around the world. Many of these are in the rural margins – places geographically but also politically distant from the centres of economic power.
In many places, tensions, struggles and conflicts have arisen around land ‘grabs’, compensation mechanisms, contracts and work opportunities, as well as environmental damage and social changes associated with large-scale resource developments.
There is increasing pressure on all of us to make better use of evidence in decision-making whether we work in research, government or NGOs. Colleagues in the IDS Knowledge Impact and Policy Team have been working for some years to help programme managers, policy advisors, evaluators, researchers and communications staff, gain the skills and competencies required to operate effectively at the interface between policy and research.
In November 2020, IDS, and over 2,000 fellow members and partners from over 140 countries will meet in Dubai for the biennial Sixth Global Symposium on Health Systems Research (#HSR2020), co-sponsored by Health Systems Global (HSG) – the international membership society for people interested and engaged in the generation and use of knowledge from health policy and systems research – the W
