Members of the Working Group on sex-disaggregated indicators

The Working Group on sex-disaggregated indicators has been focusing its attention on the production of the Toolkit. This includes a list of high-priority sex-disaggregated water indicators, a proposed methodology for collecting sex-disaggregated data, a compilation of guidelines for data gathering in the field, and a questionnaire for practitioners to collect sex-disaggregated data.

The Working Group is counting on the commitment of around 30 experts from all over the world and it has been active since early 2014. Its initial work was informed by a background report, commissioned by WWAP, on the current state of sex-disaggregated water indicators. This Overview Report can be downloaded from the top right of this page.
