Gender Mainstreaming in the UN-Habitat "Water for African Cities" Programme

In the second phase of the UN-Habitat "Water for African Cities Programme", GWA has assisted UN-Habitat in developing and implementing the gender mainstreaming strategy in the seventeen African cities that participated in this programme. GWA facilitators in each of these cities supported the organization of stakeholder platforms who together with utilities, civil society organizations, government departments and residents, developed comprehensive city Rapid Gender Assessment Reports. This process led to the development of work plans for most of the cities, which have the scope for actual change on the ground for many poor women, children and men.

Follow-up of Rapid Gender and Pro-Poor Assessments: Gender mainstreaming training workshops organised in 14 African cities of WAC II
The Major emerging issues from the Rapid Gender and Pro-poor Assessments were that even though governments have political commitment and will to the achievement of gender sensitive water and sanitation related objectives, the implementation of these objectives has been hampered. To address this, UN-HABITAT’s WSIB in partnership with GWA undertook 14 gender training workshops for WAC II implementing partners, water and sanitation utilities, and WATSAN decision and policy makers
