Gender and WaterGender issues play a vital role in the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and other international agreements related to water and sanitation. As such, gender is a focus of UN-Water and UNW-DPC actively takes part in its Task Force on this topic, coordinated by UNDESA.
Past activities in this area have included an Expert Meeting Group on Gender-disaggregated Data on Water and Sanitation, jointly organized by UNW-DPC and UNDESA at an Expert Group Meeting at the United Nations Headquarters in December 2008 in New York, which was followed up by a publication in UNW-DPC's "Knowledge" series, "Gender-disaggregated Data on Water and Sanitation".
At the 5th World Water Forum in Istanbul 2009 UNW-DPC, along with other members of the UN-Water Task Force on Gender and Water, organized a special session on "Health, Dignity and Economic Progress: a way forward to gender equity".
