This guideline has been written to assist hotels/resorts to implement gender equality, disability and socially inclusive (GEDSI) Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH)-at-Work practices in Fiji’s tourism sector and communities within the wider destination.
It has been designed to improve the resilience of communities and the sustainability of GEDSI WASH services during the COVID-19 pandemic and climate-change-related disasters.
The provision of accessible and Inclusive WASH facilities for tourism employees and visitors is important for protecting human health, enhancing work productivity, promoting development, and meeting citizens’ human rights.
Inclusive WASH-at-Work programmes within the tourism sector can significantly contribute to the sector’s sustainable development and its host communities, particularly post-COVID-19.
