Abstract: "Evidence shows that the meaningful involvement of women in water resources development and management can help make projects more sustainable, ensure that infrastructure development yields the maximum social and economic returns, and advance progress on Millennium Development Goals. National Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and water efficiency strategies and plans are an opportunity to enhance the equal participation, representation, and rights of women in the water sector. This includes creating policies and laws that institutionalize the equitable participation of men and women, fostering the development of institutions and organizations that are gender-sensitive and that have sufficient expertise in gender analysis and mainstreaming, and establishing budgeting processes that ensure steady and secure resources to support the necessary structures and programs."
