Title: Evaluating SDG Indicators 6.1.1 and 6.2.1 taking into Consideration the Importance of Gender Equality
Issue Date: 2018 Abschlussarbeit (Master) 139
Abstract: The present thesis examines the selected indicators to monitor the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets 6.1 and 6.2 of the 2030 Agenda adopted at the United Nations in 2015. It gives an overview of the most important theoretical concepts of indicator development. To evaluate the indicators, further research was done on the interrelation of gender and Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), and the concrete challenges women and girls must face. This includes an overall look at the human right principle of equality and the requirements for the human right to water and sanitation. A Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) comprising World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) is recently responsible for monitoring SDGs 6.1 and 6.2. The programme developed so-called service ladders for monitoring the achievements of the targets. This work continued with the idea of these service ladders and advanced those through the inclusion of all elements of the human right criteria to water and sanitation. Thereby the indicator covers a broader range of aspects stated by the target. Including the target statement, to pay special attention to the needs of women and girls. Furthermore, the application of these service ladders is part of this work. This was possible in the course of a case study in Peru. In order to close existing data gaps and to support the application of the advance service ladders, a Transect Walk has been conducted in San Andrés de Tupicocha/ Huarochirí. The Transect Walk proved to be a valuable instrument in collecting treasured information which goes beyond survey data from national censuses. The use of the indicators in San Andrés de Tupicocha has shown that it is possible with simple means to monitor other aspects of the target, in the awareness of the urgency to leave no one behind to achieve equality and sustainability. In addition to the Transect Walk, the case study included interviews of different institutions like research institutions, public entities, and NGOs to gain an insight into the views of the various stakeholders on the subject.
