Ladies and Gentlemen of the Press,

I welcome you to this briefing on the state of implementation of our project “WaSH-Gender” in Akwa Ibom State. WaSH-Gender is the IHE-DelL Water and Development Partnership programmes, financed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. WaSH-Gender sets out to explore ‘environmental and sociocultural factors of gender-based differences in access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) in Nigeria’. Our project aims to address the question bordering on the relationship between gender and access to water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH). For instance, how does being a man or woman shape the capacity to access water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH) in Nigeria? To what extent does access to WaSH services influence workload imbalance between men and women?
