Gender Session at 3rd Arab Water Regional Conference: “Research Advancement in Managing Limited Water Resources”

From 9-11 December 2006 the 3rd Arab Water conference took place in Cairo. In collaboration with GWA, The Egyptian National Water Research Center organised a special gender session, which was very well attended (100 out of the in total 371 participants of the conference).

The session aimed to:

  • increase the understanding of gender in water management in the Mediterranean Region
  • illustrate the practice of gender mainstreaming in IWRM in the region
  • Develop regionally appropriate indicators for monitoring and evaluation of gender in water management
  • Involve interested water professionals, decisionmakers as well as gender experts in the debate

Six presentations were given on different aspects of gender mainstreaming in water management. After every presentation, interesting and ample discussions took place, only stopped because of time constraints.
