Samenvatting

There is a renewed global commitment to 'water for all'. Yet even though women are usually responsible for domestic water provision, their needs and voices continue to be marginalized in the development process. A close analysis of current policy and practice shows that organizations providing improved water supplies to poor communities typically neglect the gendered nature of access to and control over water resources. The resulting gender bias causes inefficiencies and injustices in water provision and reduces the effectiveness of well-meant efforts. This book shows how, in different environmental, historical and cultural contexts, gender has been an important element in water provision. It draws on a wide range of first-hand material, analyzed from different disciplinary perspectives. Case studies include analysis of the role of water in inhibiting the fight against HIV/AIDS in southern Africa, and the challenges of taking gender into account in large water projects in India and Nepal.

Recensie(s)

Gender, Water and Development is recommended for graduate students, academic researchers, and development practitioners concerned with the gendered nature of water provision. With its interdisciplinary perspective and locally and historically situated analyses, this volume represents an important contribution to the literature on women and water. Mei Elansary, Oxford University This book could be particularly useful in facilitating discussions in gender studies classes on development, natural resource management, or the intersection of science, public policy and culture.
