Description

 GWA is a global network dedicated to mainstream gender in water resoures management. It is registered as an Association under Dutch law and has almost 2100 members in over 120 countries worldwide. More than eighty percent of the membership comes from a diversity of countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. Actually this video introduces the GWA training on gender and political influence that in November 2011, took place in Quito, Ecuador.

The mission of GWA is to promote women’s and men’s equitable access to and management of safe and adequate water, for domestic supply, sanitation, food security and environmental sustainability. GWA believes that equitable access to and control over water is a basic right for all, as well as a critical factor in promoting poverty eradication and sustainability.

The Gender and Water Alliance (GWA) was established at the Second World Water Forum (WWF) in March 2000. The mission of GWA is to promote women's and men's equitable access to and management of safe and adequate water, for domestic supply, sanitation, food security and environmental sustainability. The provision of sustainable water and sanitation services that incorporate an integrated water resources management approach requires a special emphasis and focus on gender, social justice and human rights. GWA believes that equitable access to and control over water is a basic right for all, as well as a critical factor in promoting poverty eradication and sustainability.
