2030 SDGs

Advancing towards gender mainstreaming in water resources management

Prepared under the SDG 6 IWRM Support Programme, the report showcases a range of practices on how countries have advanced women’s participation in water management and provides recommendations on how to replicate and upscale those practices, seen through the lens of seven enablers. It also aims to underline major gaps between policy and practice in gender mainstreaming.

The report was constructed from country answers to the gender-related survey questions sent out as part of the data collection on the progress in SDG indicator 6.5.1 implementation as well as further analysis and in-depth interviews carried out by GWP in 23 countries.
