FileGender, Water and Integrity (2015)
The provision of water services requires huge investments in all countries involving many processes and institutions, private and public in the form of governments, contractors, utilities, etc. This scenario coupled with weak governance structures and lack of social integrity becomes a breeding ground for corruption. Corruption leads to unsustainable projects, it leads to services that do not meet the people’s needs. This brochure explains why corrupt water management is a gender issue, goives examples of corrupt water management on different levels and in different countries and gives good practices of breaking with corruption in water management.
FileGender, Water and Climate Change (2009)
Climate change is a reality, and poses a serious long term threat to society and to the environment. Water is particularly threatened by climate change. With rising temperatures, changes in runoff patterns and increased water evaporation, climate change will greatly affect the distribution of the world’s water and the timing of flows. Such challenges of climate change are not gender neutral. Women and men have different vulnerability and capacity to adapt to climate impacts due to differing roles, opportunities, and access to resources. This folder gives an overview of key challenges and concludes with recommendations for policy and practice.
