Gender and Water Alliance

Watershed Empowering Citizens

Watershed is a strategic partnership between the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and IRC, Simavi, Wetlands International and Akvo, which is implemented in 6 countries including Bangladesh, as well as at the International level and in the Netherlands. The main aim of this 5-year programme (2016-2020) is to strengthen capacity of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to advocate and lobby in the interrelated fields of IWRM (Integrated Water Resource Management) and WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) to ensure equity and social inclusion, as well as sustainable usage of water resources. GWA is involved in Bangladesh, to ensure that gender and inclusion in IWRM is understood and mainstreamed in the project.
