UN WWAP Working Group on Gender-Disaggregated Indicators

WWAP has been a leader in mainstreaming gender into all of its projects and publications such as the 2012 edition of the World Water Development Report ( WWDR)  “Managing Water Under Uncertainties and Risks”, the 2014 annual report ( WWDR2014) “Water and Energy”  and all side publications

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

An international Working Group is assisting WWAP in PHASE I of the project on gender sensitive water monitoring, assessment and reporting

The Working Group brings to the project professional and updated 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 through July 2014, the main task of the Working Group has been to identify 4 – 6 priority indicators for field piloting. At least one indicator on women’s empowerment and participation in water resources decision-making will be included, as a distinctive contribution that UN WWAP UNESCO can make. 

Progress on this project will  be presented at international conferences and seminars, including particularly: 

Inception meeting of the project for Gender Sensitive Water Monitoring Assessment and Reporting
