Making community and public toilets inclusive in Wai

April 2022

Majority of the households in Wai city have constructed their own toilets, few are still dependent on community toilets (CTs) due to lack of space to construct their own toilet, financial constraint, etc. The key focus of this study is to make the CTs and PTs in Wai inclusive, especially for the women and the vulnerable households. Thus, the study assesses the infrastructure of all the CTs and PTs in Wai through a gender lens and from the perspective of the vulnerable households. In order to use the existing infrastructure optimally, the usage pattern and the dependency on the CTs and PTs are studied. The document also includes the interventions taken by the local government based on the findings of the study to make the CT/PT in Wai inclusive.
