Impacts of domestic water supply on gender and income: results from a participatory study in a drought-prone region in Gujarat, India

In this paper the value of an improved domestic water supply was investigated for economic development and gender relations in rural households in a drought-prone area. The extra income that women gain when the supply works and is used economically helps poor families to bridge the dry season. The findings support the view that rural poverty and the status of women would receive a significant boost if policy makers focused on providing employment opportunities for women along with improved water supplies
