Gender in community water supply, sanitation and water resource protection : a guide to methods and techniques

This document covers the main activities and decisions in rural water supply, sanitation and water resource protection projects, which according to the experiences collected at IRC, require a gender-specific approach in the planning, implementation and documentation. The findings, summarized in this document, are derived from the inputs for three regional expert consultations on methods to involve women in rural water supply and sanitation and water resource protection projects. The consultations took place in Nairobi, Kenya (February 1993), Cali, Colombia (August 1993) and Mount Lavinia, Sri Lanka (September 1993). The purpose of the consultations was to exchange experiences on gender-specific approaches in the participants' projects and to document these experiences in a set of three field guides each focusing on the situation in the region concerned, on how to apply a gender approach in rural water supply, sanitation and water resource protection projects. Further information on the three field guides is to be found in Appendix A of this document.

Abstract

This document covers the main activities and decisions in rural water supply, sanitation and water resource protection projects, which according to the experiences collected at IRC, require a gender-specific approach in the planning, implementation and documentation. The findings, summarized in this document, are derived from the inputs for three regional expert consultations on methods to involve women in rural water supply and sanitation and water resource protection projects. The consultations took place in Nairobi, Kenya (February 1993), Cali, Colombia (August 1993) and Mount Lavinia, Sri Lanka (September 1993). The purpose of the consultations was to exchange experiences on gender-specific approaches in the participants' projects and to document these experiences in a set of three field guides each focusing on the situation in the region concerned, on how to apply a gender approach in rural water supply, sanitation and water resource protection projects. Further information on the three field guides is to be found in Appendix A of this document.
