Water dialogues: Where are the women in the decision-making process? Examples from Africa, Europe and Asia

The International Centre for Water Cooperation seminar – lunch included

Welcome to our first water dialogue of 2020! SIWI and IHE Delft will present their findings from their study on women’s participation in water governance.

Whilst women’s participation has increased in recent years, the participation in high-level processes remains at a staggering 2 %. The study consists of a comparative case study on decision-making from a gendered perspective and examines three different basins: the Nile basin (North-eastern Africa), the Rhine basin (Europe) and Chu-Talas basin (Central Asia).

The objectives of the study are to asses:
(1) If and how gender indeed impacts decision-making;
(2) Which effects women’s participation in decision-making have for water cooperation and conflict prevention; and
(3) How to effectively strengthen inclusive high-level decision-making.

Venue: Linnégatan 87A, 115 23 Stockholm
