Online course on gender and integrated water resources management


A free, online course on gender and integrated water resources management (IWRM) is available until 31 March 2022. It is accessible on the Cap-Net virtual campus, and was jointly developed by Cap-Net, Global Water Partnership (GWP) and the Gender and Water Alliance (GWA).

Launched in October 2021, the course aims at increasing practitioners' understanding of the benefits of meaningfully incorporating gender into water resources management.

It provides an in-depth guide on how gender and water resources are intrinsically linked. It also explores obstacles faced by vulnerable groups when dealing with water, demonstrates how the two are connected, and explains the benefits of addressing them in an integrated way.

People representing stakeholder groups from the entire water sector globally are invited to take this course. Participation is free of charge.
