Clean Tigris: Addressing gender inequality and implementing gender-transformative approaches

How can we adequately address gender equality when it comes to political decision-making processes regarding natural resources? How can we implement gender-transformative approaches to climate change adaptation and mitigation governance?
Within the dialogue programme Clean Tigris, elbarlament organised an online training on gender dynamics and water resources with the Egyptian gender expert Salma Kadry to address these pertinent issues. The event took place online on 26 August 2021.
The workshop strived to raise awareness for gender-sensitive planning of measures. The Water Gender Toolkit developed by UNESCO was also introduced to the participants, which ranged from NGOs and academia to staff members of the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Water Resources and the Ministry of Agriculture.
For further reading on the topic we recommend the article ‘Gender and Water Dynamics in Iraq: towards inclusive and sustainable water responses‘, Salma Kadry’s contribution to our book ‘Water is Life – from Mesopotamian water laws to International Cooperation‘.
The two years dialogue project is funded by the ifa with funds from the German Federal Foreign Office. Read more on the project here.
