Remember gender (2nd World Water Forum, 17th March 2000)

The video provides highlights from the various workshops and presentations at the Gender Day at the Second World Water Forum, March 2000 in the Hague, the Netherlands. It contains interesting quotes from various women and men about challenges, approaches, achievements and outputs and follow up from the Gender Day, especially the launch and the aims of the Gender and Water Alliance. "We over-concentrated on talking to women", Vice President of Uganda Ms Kazibe said in her key note speech. The film includes shots from the following workshops: The sanitation taboo, Bridging the gaps between water policy and practice, Demonstration on tools around willingness to pay, From Vision to Action for Gender Equity (with HRH Prince Willem Alexander present), From buckets to basins, the cultural shows and the plenary sessions. It ends with statements from Rita Rahman, Advisor at DGIS and Jennifer Francis, Executive Secretary of the Gender and Water Alliance.
The final message: "Addressing gender means: demystifying gender addressing value systems and cutting through stereotyping of women as victims and beneficiaries only. For this we require: legal rights and their implementation, gender desegregation of information and knowledge sharing and institutionalization of a gender perspective in organisations and capacity building at all levels." The GWA developed action plan and aims were endorsed by the Ministerial Conference at the conference, with some of the ministers expressing commitments to the GWA aims.

It contains interesting quotes from various women and men about challenges, approaches, achievements and outputs and follow up from the Gender Day, especially the launch and the aims of the Gender and Water Alliance. "We over-concentrated on talking to women", Vice President of Uganda Ms Kazibe said in her key note speech. The film includes shots from the following workshops: The sanitation taboo, Bridging the gaps between water policy and practice, Demonstration on tools around willingness to pay, From Vision to Action for Gender Equity (with HRH Prince Willem Alexander present), From buckets to basins, the cultural shows and the plenary sessions. It ends with statements from Rita Rahman, Advisor at DGIS and Jennifer Francis, Executive Secretary of the Gender and Water Alliance.
The final message: "Addressing gender means: demystifying gender addressing value systems and cutting through stereotyping of women as victims and beneficiaries only. For this we require: legal rights and their implementation, gender desegregation of information and knowledge sharing and institutionalization of a gender perspective in organisations and capacity building at all levels."
