Education and WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene) are two of six areas of focus of the Rotary Foundation. This page provides links to selected open access World Bank publications on those topics, with in the case of WASH a focus on WASH in schools. The hope is that these resources will be useful to Rotarians and others working on those areas. The focus is on books published since 2010 as opposed to working papers, journal articles, and briefs. The publications were selected as a resource for participants at the 2016 Rotary Presidential Conferences on Literacy and WASH in school in Kolkata, India, and on WASH in School near Manila, Philippines. A paper including abstracts and pictures for the selected publications is available on the Blog Series page of this blog.
The World Bank publications listed below cover ten main areas as follows: Country and Regional Studies in Education; Textbooks; Education in Conflict-affected Countries; Student Assessments; WASH in Schools and School Health; Faith-based Schools; Preschools and Early Childhood Development; Teachers; Skills for the Workforce; and Entrepreneurship Education (the last two topics are also listed on the page of this blog devoted top resources about entrepreneurships, jobs, and skills).
Please note that this compilation of recent publications is provided as a service to Rotarians and others working on these areas without any endorsement of the World Bank as to which publications should be featured.
