Project Profile

Gender responsive tools for improving irrigation performance

Duration : January 1, 2014 - December 31, 2014
(Extended to December 31, 2016)

Irrigation project managers and implements engaged under the IMAWESA project have expressed strong interest in having available performance indicators for gender on irrigation schemes. They have made requests to IWMI to assist in providing an accessible tool to use in this regard. Based on previous research done by IWMI (including RR59), this project will engage experts on M & E indicators and user manual development to translate existing IWMI research into an accessible and user friendly generic framework and manual to assist irrigation scheme implementers in assessing gender performance
