Gender, water and sanitation: a policy brief

Source(s):  Inter-Agency Network on Women and Gender Equality (IANWGE)

This paper highlights that despite their number and their prominent roles and responsibilities in relation to water and sanitation, women often have no voice and no choice in decisions about the kind of services they need or are receiving. This policy brief describes the current status, the issues of particular concern and recommends areas for action.

It was developed by the Inter-agency Task Force on Gender and Water (GWTF), a sub-programme of both UN-Water and the Interagency Network on Women and Gender Equality (IANWGE) in support of the International Decade for Action, ‘Water for Life,’ 2005–2015.
