Abstract

The report reviews a vast body of literature to present a thinking device that visualizes water as an asset, a service, and a space. It shows water as an arena where gender relations play out in ways that often mirror inequalities between the sexes. The report's key message is that interventions in water-related domains are important in and of themselves and for enhancing gender equality more broadly.
