Gender, Water and Development (Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Women)

ISBN: 1845201256;
Издательство: Berg Publishers

Book Description A close analysis of current policy and practice shows that organizations providing improved water supplies to poor communities typically neglect the gendered nature of access to and control over water resources. The resulting gender bias causes inefficiencies and injustices in water provision and reduces the effectiveness of well-meant efforts. This book shows how in different environmental, historical and cultural contexts gender has been an important element in water provision. It draws on a wide range of first-hand material, analyzed from different disciplinary perspectives. Case studies include analysis of the role of water in inhibiting the fight against HIV/AIDS in southern Africa and the challenges of taking gender into account in large water projects in India and Nepal.
