Management Development Programme on Gender, Equity and Water Management



Programme Overview

Gender mainstreaming has been part of the international discourse on Integrated Water Resource Management for many years. There have been several efforts and initiatives in making the water sector both more gender balanced and gender sensitive. However, critical challenges still remain to be addressed.

This programme develops a good conceptual and theoretical understanding of gender, rights and equity issues among participants while providing them with exposure to the practical challenges in making the water sector more gender balanced and gender sensitive. The programme also aims to build capacities of participants with respect to gender equity by suggesting practical strategies to enable them to work for sustainable and gender sensitive management of water resources. The overall objective is to make the participants better informed and motivated to make changes within their overall sphere of influence as well as to emerge as stronger advocates for gender equity at a personal level.

The programme comprises two days of intensive sessions. The pedagogy comprises lectures, case studies, short films, and group work to facilitate cross-learning and synthesis.

  • Introduce participants to new understandings of development with respect to gender equity and water management
