Gender Equality, Youth and Social Inclusion
IWMI’s research shows that access to water can significantly affect the dynamics of growth and a country’s overall economic development. Real progress cannot be achieved if water investments, innovations and interventions do not respond to the complexities of inequality and social inclusion.
It is these inequalities around who has the power to participate in, and make decisions over resource allocation and management, which can determine the winners and losers under conditions of climate change – especially during extreme weather events such as droughts and floods. Gender equality and inclusion are key to sustainable and equitable systems-level solutions. All voices and opinion should be counted for a project to take root and grow, no matter their gender, caste or age.
