Political 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.
