FileCase study on Gender and Empowerment through Wash
It is often assumed that participation and representation of women in Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) committees will lead to their empowerment. Therefore, in order to get a better insight into “How” participation in the WASH committees can lead to empowerment of women, Simavi and the Gender and Water Alliance, through the Gender and Water Programme Bangladesh, decided to do a study to get a better insight on “If”, “How” and “Why” women’s empowerment has taken place as a result of participation in the WASH committee or other WASH interventions.

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.

FilePolitical Empowerment of Women in the South West IWRM Project
The South West Area Integrated Water Resources Planning and Management Project (SWAIWRPMP) was supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands (EKN) with a substantial grant from January 2006 until June 2015. In the project a concerted effort was made to involve women, and it is said that due to the project’s interventions the political empowerment of women has increased to such levels, that more women are elected in the Union Parishad. The Gender and Water Programme Bangladesh (GWAPB) undertook a field study to investigate whether and how this project has contributed to empowerment of women in the area, especially in the political dimension.
