This handbook has been developed by Sida's Department for Natural Resources and the Environment in close collaboration with the Gender Equality Unit to further the development of awareness, commitment and capacity for working with a gender perspective in water resources management. The handbook has three parts: i. An analysis of the linkages between gender equality and water resources management which should guide sector analysis and policy development and help set concrete measurable goals; ii. Talking points to guide policy dialogue on gender in relation to water resources management taking the starting point in both social justice and effectiveness rationales; and iii. Guidance for mainstreaming gender in different parts of the planning cycle: sector analysis, project formulation/appraisals, annual reviews and evaluations. This part of the handbook has not been developed as a conventional checklist. It is comprised of a series of questions which should be asked at different phases of the planning cycle as well as comments on why these questions are relevant and possible actions to be taken. It aims to develop awareness of the questions that need to be asked rather than an attempt to give answers.
