Gender Equality and Goal 6 – The Critical Connection

August 2019

This publication outlines why gender equality and inclusion is central to water resources management, and how practitioners can genuinely engage with issues related to inclusion through policy and practice.

Throughout this publication, a range of case studies from Australian based organisations and partners are presented, providing an ‘Australian perspective’ on the critical connection between gender equality and inclusion, water resources management and WASH in international work.

Key messages include:

  • proactive and deliberate meaningful participation of women and gender‑discriminated people is needed at all stages of management;
  • integration across the SDGs leads to more equitable and sustainable outcomes;
  • good data underpins good practice.
