Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) Water for Women 2022 Outreach Extension – Nepal
The International Water Management Institute (IWMI) has recently completed a three-year research project titled A gender perspective to understand and enhance the functionality of water supply systems: Lessons from Nepal (GP4WSF). The project has generated scientific evidence and tools about gender equality and social inclusion dynamics of rural water access, and community water supply systems and its functionality. The purpose of funding under this Agreement (WRA094_A) is to facilitate continued engagement of key IWMI personnel with Water for Women Fund activities in the period following expiration of the Type 2 WASH Research Awards Grant Agreement WRA094. Continued engagement will enhance the impact of IWMI’s contribution to the Water for Women Fund goal of ‘Improved health, gender equality and well-being of Asian and Pacific communities through inclusive, sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)’, in particular the Water for Women Fund’s fourth end-of-program outcome (EOPO4): ‘Strengthened use of new evidence, innovation and practice in sustainable gender and inclusive WASH by other civil society organizations (CSOs), and national and international WASH sector actors’.
