Towards a gender and water index

Abstract

The Water Poverty Index seeks to link the challenge of the sustainable management of freshwater resources, and the social uplift of the world's poor. This paper expands on the gender dimensions of the Index, and explores a methodology for the development of a specific Gender and Water Index for integrated water resources management. Developing a Gender and Water Index is analagous to what the Water and Poverty Index developed for poverty.
