Since its launch in 2017, the Women in Water Diplomacy Network in the Nile has promoted women’s participation in high-level water diplomacy processes in the Nile basin. It has contributed to building both trust and an enabling environment for inclusive cooperation.
Through the network, members share experiences and lessons learned.
The Women in Water Management in Central Asia and Afghanistan works across Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The network promotes women water professionals’ participation in decision-making in the water sector and gender mainstreaming in water governance.
Through the Network, women water experts from the region engage in joint capacity building, experience sharing, knowledge exchange, and skills building activities. The Network supports development of women water experts in the region and enhanced regional water cooperation.
