FileGender and Water Inventory
There are many policy documents, acts, research papers, case studies, books, guidelines, and toolkits that are relevant to the water sector and the different users in Bangladesh. GWAPB maintains an inventory of these documents and publications, specific to the context of Bangladesh, reviews the information with a gender-sensitive lens, lists the sources, and provides this information in an accessible and user-friendly format for reference of the public, through our online Gender and Water Inventory (GWI). The GWI is a living inventory to be updated on a regular basis. In case you want to add a document, please mail to secretariat (ad) gwalliance.org.

FileVoices of SIDR Survivors: Life stories of surviving victims of Cyclone SIDR
This book is a rare compilation of the unheard life stories of some survivors of the deadly Cyclone SIDR that hit Bangladesh in 2007. Using the actual words of the survivors as far as possible, the book attempts to recount the suffering, courage and attempts of poor women and men survivors to improve their situation and get back on their feet after devastating disasters. Despite their resourcefulness and amazing capacity to adapt and survive, women and men such as these survivors of SIDR in coastal Bangladesh are as yet mostly unseen and unheard - reduced to a number in disaster statistics on loss and damage, and not even this sometimes. Through this documentation we hope to bring to the attention of decision makers and the wider public not only the needs and interests of those left behind in the wake of a disaster, but also their capacity and skills - which is better used in relief and rehabilitation efforts, rather than ignored. GWAPB acknowledges Voice of South Bangladesh for enabling this work, and also the Netherlands Embassy for financing this work.

FileGender and Water Poverty: Salinity in Rampal and Saronkhola, Bagerhat
The NGO Voice of South Bangladesh conducted a study in two unions of Bagerhat district, in the Coastal Belt, where salinity is increasing as a result of various factors, amongst them: climate change and global warming resulting in sea water rise, and the large dam in India that withholds the water in the dry season and opens the gates in the monsoon. Shrimp cultivation is a third factor. Both poor women and men suffer from the saline water, but women more: they are responsible for water and hygiëne in the household, and for their reproductive duties. So much water everywhere, but drinking water is far away or expensive. In the paper the findings are analysed from an empowerment perspective. Different categories of people are interviewed.
