New Gender and Water Resource Guide

(Note: Sometimes ya just gotta see this stuff to believe that someone actually conceived such a 'white elephant!' This comes from the United Nations Development Programme, no less -- keeping in mind that mega U.S. Taxpayer Dollars are given as 'dues' to this New York City-based foreign government. )

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the Gender and Water Resource Guide:
Mainstreaming Gender in Water Management is now available
as a user-friendly interactive web version. See UNDP Mainstreaming Gender in Water Management - a Practical Journey to Sustainability: A Resource Guide

The Resource Guide has been developed by UNDP in collaboration with the Gender Water Alliance (GWA) and SIDA. UNDP and its partners will aim to continually update the guide in order to keep abreast of new materials, information and concepts.

The Gender and Water Resource Guide has been developed to assist development practitioners in mainstreaming gender within the context of integrated water resources management (IWRM). The mainstreaming of gender is critical to reach the Millennium Development Goals as well as the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation. The resource guide consolidates available materials and gives a quick guide to accessing existing information.

We would appreciate if you can disseminate the Resource Guide throughout your networks. We are inviting your comments on the Resource Guide so that we can make future versions even better.

You may contact us at the address listed below for further information or to receive a copy of the interactive CD-ROM.

Many thanks and kind regards,

Lara Yacob,

Programme Officer, UNDP
