Addressing gender and water together seeks to ensure that the contributions of both men and women are recognised. To manage water effectively and sustainably, it is important to understand the different roles of men and women and to target action appropriately. Re-examining how women and men manage water will allow us to:

  • Share benefits from use of water
  • Make progress towards more sustainable use of water; and
  • Maximize social and economic benefit from sustainable use of water.

This becomes increasingly urgent in a situation where water is becoming scarcer and competition between users is growing.

We are willing to upload other language versions if you have translated the material. An interactive version of the tutorial is available on CD together with a collection of useful reference documents and will be sent upon request to Cap-Net.
