The report evaluates the involvement of women in nine projects in African countries, including water supply and sanitation projects in Kenya, Niger, and Swaziland. The report deals with women's participation in all stages of the projects, including the effects of the projects on women and the consequences of (non-)integration on cost-efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainability of the projects. The general recommendations focus on ways to integrate the policy on Women and Development (WID) more systematically and consistently in the EEC's development assistance in Africa. It is recommended to improve access for women to extension and training services. It is reiterated that the possible effect of new technology on women's workload needs to be taken into account. More specifically referring to the water and sanitation sector, the report points out possible improvements: synchronisation of technical performance and human resources development; promotion of women's participation in local water committees; development of health education; integration of women in monitoring and evaluation. The report includes a summary of findings for each project and a series of checklists for WID.
