Tutorial for Water Managers: Why Gender Matters (2014)
Together with CapNet GWA has developed a self learning tool for water professionals and others interested in or responsible for managing water resources. This was published first in 2006, and has now been revised and updated. The tutorial wants to show how addressing gender will improve efficiency of water use and environmental sustainability. Therefore this tutorial first deals with the general concepts of gender and gender mainstreaming and then specifies to look at the following water sectors: drinking water, sanitation, agriculture and environment (including climate change). But apart from the "why" the tutorial also deals with the "how" of gender mainstreaming. To this end a quick-guide has been included at the beginning of the Tutorial, and in every chapter references and links to manuals, tools, resource centres and case studies are included.
