Background: #WebPolicyLearning on Women-led Sustainable and Decentralised Water Resource Management – A Multi-Stakeholders’ Perspective

The management of water resources in India is of paramount importance and it has only gotten more challenging to sustain a growing population of over one billion people. Coupled with the imminent threats of climate change and ongoing environmental degradation, the future seems bleak where access to water is concerned. Most metropolitan cities have already experienced water scarcity, and it is fair to say the situation is abysmal. Under stressed water availability conditions, the disparity in the availability of access to water is most prominent.

Women in most developing economies constitute a large part of the labour force, more than half of the agricultural sector, and can account for most of the food produced in the developing world.  In spite of being substantially involved in various sectors of their developing economies, women are overlooked by policies and programs, and their involvement in the water sector is ignored.

Sustainable Development Goals 5, 6, and 11 which aim to achieve gender equality, access to clean water and sanitation, and build sustainable communities, call for the implementation of inclusive strategies that target the issue from the bottom to the top to effectively combat the threat of a grave water crisis.

The rapid urbanisation in India further accelerates the demand for water and the challenges to sustainability. Considering that women lead most households and constitute much of the workforce, their absence in water management efforts limits the performance of the water sector, which we cannot afford any longer.

This 3-day online training program aims to bring together experts from academia, civil society, and the private entrepreneurial sector to begin a conversation that is crucial to our time. The overall objective of this program is to shine a light on the significant role that women play in the developing world and to provide a deep understanding of how their involvement can be harnessed to rigorously reform water management strategies.
