Gender & SDG6: The Critical Connection – framing paper released

A new framing paper for the High-Level Panel on Water – Gender & SDG 6: The Critical Connection – is now publicly available.

It explores how to promote gender equality in both water resources management and WASH, and by doing so, contribute to more sustainable and effective water management outcomes for all people, while decreasing the inequalities prevalent in many societies.

The framing paper was prepared for the Australian Water Partnership at the request of the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade by Melita Grant and Professor Juliet Willetts of the Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology Sydney, and Chelsea Huggett of WaterAid. The paper was submitted to the World Bank/UN High-Level Panel on Water in November.
