Gender inequity is prevalent in water management and agriculture, but little accurate data are available on gendered aspects of these sectors. In order to improve gender equity in access and decision-making, researchers, policy makers and development investors need better information and a clearer understanding of gender relations in water and agricultural systems. The basin maps on this website aim to provide an evidence base for analysis of gender disparities and new development opportunities. The maps should prove useful for: researchers using evidence-based data to better inform and target their research, policy makers and regional authorities who make water and agricultural management decisions, donors wishing to better target their development initiatives and investments in response to regional demands, civil society groups, who can use the maps for planning and programming, as they work towards gender equality and poverty reduction.
