Integrating gender needs into drinking water projects in Nepal

Abstract

This article uses the framework of strategic and practical gender needs (Moser 1989) in the context of the drinking-water sector, to argue that understanding how these needs are interlinked is essential for the sustainability of drinking water projects. It shows what project planners can do to ensure women's true participation in the design and maintenance of development projects, without increasing women's workloads, and with the aim of raising their status in the family and community, as well as challenging men's prejudice.
