Gender Equality and Inclusion in Water Resources Management

Water is crucial to development in any sector. It is now more important than ever to break the silos and adopt an integrated, all-of-society approach that ensures that the needs of women and marginalised groups are addressed in the implementation of water policies and interventions. GWP facilitated the framework for discussion to collaboratively explore concrete ways forward for the gender and water nexus. This was translated, with the excellent work of the Institute for Sustainable Futures (Australia), into four tangible action areas and recommendations that will allow decision-makers, organisations, and practitioners to develop inclusive policies and practices. This Action Piece is an evidence-based call to action to all actors to build more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable societies. (Published on August 2017)
