Gender Equality, Disability and Social Inclusion
The Australian Water Partnership (AWP) recognises that the integration of Gender Equality, Disability and Social Inclusion (GEDSI) in its activities will lead to more equitable and sustainable outcomes. In recognition of the importance we have developed an AWP GEDSI Policy (formerly known as the AWP GESI Policy initiated in December 2017). In line with the policy, AWP strives to support partners in their capacity to consider and include GEDSI in their work. This support includes training courses and annual workshops, and a Guidance for Partners document that explains how to address GEDSI in AWP concepts, proposals and tenders. GEDSI is one of ten criteria against which these are assessed, and it is also an essential criterion.
