UN WWAP Working Group on Sex-Disaggregated Indicators

WWAP has been a leader in mainstreaming gender into all of its projects and publications, such as in the World Water Development Reports of the last 4 years.

WWAP now breaks new ground with this gender sensitive methodology for sex-disaggregated water indicators.

An international Working Group has assisted WWAP in Phase I of the Project on gender-sensitive water monitoring, assessment and reporting.

The Working Group brings to the project professional and up-to-date information, review, and expert advice on theoretical considerations and methodologies for the Toolkit. The Working Group, consisting of members from around the world, has been deeply involved in the project through regular meetings and teleconferences.

From April 2014 to August 2015, the main task of the Working Group has been to identify five priority indicators for water monitoring. These can now be found in the Toolkit for gender-sensitive water monitoring, reporting and assessment.

Process on this project is presented at international conferences and seminars, including particularly:

  • Gender and Water conference in East London, South Africa 2014
  • World Water Forum, South Korea 2015
  • World Water Week, Stockholm 2014 & 2015
  • UNESCO General Conference 2015
