Gender and integrated water resources management course

Community participation_Katrin Gronemeier

Gender and water resources are intrinsically linked. A new, self-paced, online course, based on the Why Gender Matters in IWRM training manual developed by Cap-Net and the Gender and Water Alliance (GWA), explores the challenges faced by vulnerable groups when dealing with water, demonstrates how the two are connected, explains the benefits of addressing them in an integrated way, and presents comprehensive tools on how to achieve this.

Case studies and lessons learned are shared to provide concrete examples which can be tailored and adapted to suit practitioners’ needs.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to design and implement integrated and inclusive interventions in the water sector which ensure strong recognition of marginalized groups, leverage their knowledge towards adaptive measures to climate change, and work towards inclusive representation and access for sustainable management practices.
