The untapped potential of gender equality in the water realm
Lecture by Laurens Thuy, ‘Gender & Communication’ Consultant at the UNESCO World Water Assessment Programme Gender (WWAP)
*Kindly note that due to the current situation caused by the coronavirus this lecture will only be available as podcast on our website. The speaker will be available for one week after the lecture date to answer your questions, which can be submitted to the Gender Coordinator, Prof. Elisa Fornalé (email@example.com).
This lecture explores the intrinsic connection between water and gender, and gives insight into how it is crucial for sustainable development, thereby touching upon the aspect of health and Covid19. It provides an introduction to the UNESCO WWAP ‘Water and Gender Toolkit’, that offers - with its 105 gender-responsive indicators - a methodology for the collection of scarce but much-needed sex-disaggregated data from the field, on a wide range of related topics.
This is the seventh in the 2019/2020 'Talking Gender, Equality and Diversity' lecture series organised by the WTI gender equality group.
