Webinar V - Combining Gender Equity And Water Management Targets: Projects In Support Of SDGs 5 And 6

In September 2015, the world agreed to the Sustainable Development Goals, including Goal 5 on gender empowerment and equality and Goal 6 on availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation. Lasting achievement of Goals 5 and 6 depends on progress on targets under each Goal – they are interconnected. But what does this look like at the project-level? Well-designed IW projects can help ensure women’s continued access to sustainable sources of safe water for health and livelihood purposes and advance progress towards women’s effective participation in water resources decision-making – simultaneously moving the needle on Goals 5 and 6 at the same time. This webinar will discuss ideas for operationalizing SDG targets on gender and water at the project level.
