The Global Water Initiative (GWI) was an action-research and advocacy programme that ran from 2008-17. The project is now closed. This site is no longer being updated, but allows access to GWI outputs until 1 October 2020 when it will also close. After that date, information about the project and core GWI technical publications will continue to be available from the IIED website and Publications Library.
More and more women now hold positions of responsibility within the water sector in Burkina Faso. GWI’s gender-based training on IWRM promotes and supports female leadership in the water sector. This report highlights major recent events that have signalled positive changes in thinking about gender, and proposes recommendations for further improvements to gender equality across the sector.
