Water Resource Management and Gender

Many programmes fail to recognise differences between men and women with regard to their demands on, access to and control over water resources and capacities. This reduces the ability to better understand and appropriately address water issues. The development of Integrated Water Resource Management strategies and plans presents unique opportunities for enhancing the equal participation, representation and rights of women and men in the water sector. It also provides the opportunity to improve the effectiveness and sustainability of those strategies. (Published in 2012)
