Gender Mainstreaming in Water Management

Bangkok - Thailand , Registration Deadline: September 5,2022 , Training Date: September 26,2022 TO September 28,2022
                        Safe, adequate and sustainable water supplies for all!			

What this course is about:

In the area of water resources management, an uncoordinated and sectoral approach has resulted in environmental degradation from overexploitation of water resources, inappropriate allocations among competing uses, inequitable distribution of benefits and burdens, and inadequate operation and maintenance of infrastructure. Inadequate involvement of both women and men has hindered programmes and projects aimed at addressing sustainability in water resources management. Community participation and management approaches have failed to address these issues, largely because communities are often seen as a collection of people with a common purpose. Throughout the developing world, the water and gender scenario is all too familiar: women labor to provide water for household needs while men make decisions about water resources management and development at both local and national levels. We believe projects, programmes and policies that address gender inequalities will enhance both water resources management and human development opportunities for both men and women.

An inclusive and co-operative water governance approach can facilitate the mainstreaming of gender at the sectoral level while taking into account the interrelated needs of multiple users. Involving both women and men in leadership and on decision-making bodies at all levels will improve water management and project performance and increase the likelihood of environmental, social and economic sustainability.

After the training the participants:

The training will serve as a guide to achieving gender mainstreaming in the projects related to water management.  It will help the participants to integrate or mainstream gender concerns into the project cycle and to ensure that development interventions are gender-sensitive toward the successful implementation of development programs/projects. This training will also include guidance on identifying data needs for gender mainstreaming and the identification and development of gender-sensitive indicators while giving practical tips in assessing and evaluating the gender sensitivity of projects.

Training Contents:

  • Why a gender approach
  • Black holes in community participation
  • Traditional water management and gender roles
  • Sustainable water management
  • The gender approach
  • The gender approach in action – examples from the field
  • Mainstreaming the gender perspective in water resources management
  • Benefits of gendered water management

Methodology of training:

The mixed-method approach will be used to inculcate the adult learning principles for the training. To make it highly innovative, the trainer will use lectures, discussions, group work, exercises and case studies. The training will be conducted in a friendly environment where the participants will be encouraged to bring forward their queries and share their thoughts and opinions. Participative practical activities will reinforce individual and group learning. The training will be evaluated at every day’s end to know the shortcomings/lacking and will be improved for the next day.
