Sustainable Development Goal 3 (SDG3) aims to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all. Access to improved WASH services can prevent at least 9.1% of the global disease burden and 6.3% of all deaths, and can significantly reduce stunting among children. In addition, clean energy solutions can save millions of lives. How is our work contributing to #SDG3? Follow the discussions on our website and on Twitter.

Fulfilling an urgent need for clean cookstoves in Vietnam

The majority of people living in the countryside of Vietnam rely on inefficient, polluting cookstoves for daily cooking.

Her story now needs to spread so that the whole community will eventually enjoy a cleaner and healthier environment.

Targeting decentralised energy with international climate finance

SNV and other development organisations have been saying this for a while, but now the call for climate finance to be better targeted towards small-scale decentralised energy has been reinforced by experts from a Dutch policy institute, the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL). Check out the recently published report. 

The power of multi-sectoral governance to address malnutrition

Towards 100% access to improved sanitation in Bhutan

In Bhutan, poor sanitation accounts for 30% of health cases reported. Girls often miss days of school during their period because they lack access to hygienic toilets and sanitary napkins. Plus, the economic impacts are often overlooked. Read how the Sustainable Sanitation & Hygiene for All (SSH4A) programme is tackling these issues.

An entrepreneurial approach to public health in Niger

Most public markets in Niamey, Niger entirely lack any sanitation facilities. In the face of this problem, Djibril Seydou saw both a way to improve sanitation and health in the community as well as a business opportunity. With a grant from the YAWWA programme, Djibril developed a simple, yet innovative technology: mobile public toilets.

Challenges & opportunities for women’s economic empowerment in agriculture

Even when access to productive resources is guaranteed, women farmers often benefit less than men farmers from extension advice. We need to turn our attention to the larger environment, examine and correct pervasive gender biases in organisations and alter service provision so that it is not biased against women. Read a post by Raymond Brandes, EOWE Programme Manager.
