Gender Integration Guide In Institution-Based Waste Water Treatment Program
Why is this Gender Integration Guide Important and Necessary?
• The society is not homogenous; it consists of men and women and various other groups
with different socio-economic backgrounds. They have different rights, roles, experiences,
issues, and needs that must be taken into account in the planning and implementation of the
waste water program.
• The interest and participation of men and women in waste water affairs is still low and needs
improvement to support the program’s effectiveness and sustainability.
• The guide will help in the operation of policies and national development documents
particularly with regard to sanitation development.
Who will use this Guide?
• Central Government agencies, such as Directorate General of Human Settlements (DGHS),
Ministry of Public Works (MPW)and Home Affairs Ministry, among others.
• Regional governments and institutions, such as Regional Drinking Water Company (PDAM),
Regional Waste Water Treatment Company (PDPAL), and associated regional working
units (SKPD), such as Bappeda, Health Office, Women’s Empowerment Agency, and
• Members of Regional Parliament, to ensure that gender integration is performed in
preparation of policies and budget for waste water treatment in Cities/Regencies.
• Contractors and consultants involved in the waste water treatment program.
