Expand view

WaterAid, in collaboration with CBM Australia and Di Kilsby consulting have published a paper to examine the linkages, common approaches and learning in both areas. 

The discussion paper explores: 
• How the water, sanitation and hygiene sector can continue to improve practice on gender and disability
• How an integrated approach to the two intersectional issues of gender and disability help us to ‘do development better’

The discussion paper provides reflections on applying integrated gender and disability approaches to rights- based water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) programs in Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea.  
The paper is intended as a conversation starter for WASH program managers and other development practitioners looking to strengthen their conceptual and practical understanding of challenges and successes in integrating gender and disability in WASH and those looking to move towards more transformative and sustainable practice.

It is hoped that these Guidelines will help ensure that users receive appropriate and affordable AT that suit their needs, daily activities and lifestyles, while satisfying minimum requirements for safety, strength and durability, and that service providers are trained in all steps of the service provision cycle.

"[T]his study gathered information from CBR volunteers in Eritrea, Egypt, India, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, Pakistan, and Vietnam (n=176) regarding their expectations, roles, attitudes and behaviours pertaining to CBR work. The survey revealed that majority of CBR volunteers volunteered their time as a personal decision (63%) and were not personally disabled (84%). It was found that satisfaction from CBR work was directly related to self-efficacy or behaviour specific confidence in their ability to perform CBR-related tasks, while inverse and significant relationships were found with barriers and outcome expectations. Thus, for retaining volunteers, CBR projects need to provide educational activities that build self-efficacy of volunteers to fulfill CBR-related tasks and reduce barriers"

International journal of transitions in childhood

Expand view

The International Journal of Transitions in Childhood is an online, international academic peer-reviewed, research journal and publishes papers that explore and advance thinking about childhood and the variety of transitions experienced by children. It also seeks a common forum for work that describes, extends and inspires sensitive approaches to the theory and practices of childhood transitions including educational policy and practice, and this should be made explicit in papers. The Journal is designed to attract a broad international readership including researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and parents and should be essential reading for those who work with young children or who want to keep up to date with recent trends in issues around the diversity of transitions experienced by children. The contents of each edition comprise mostly papers reporting current research. However, at least one article per edition will provide information about transition from a practitioner perspective
