A major challenge for clients is understanding what constitutes gender, participation and mechanisms of implementation in order to ensure effective project performance that leads to people’s improved standards of living. For many people, men as well as women who work in the water sector, gender as still synonymous with only women’s participation. Little attention is therefore accorded to the respective work, responsibilities, benefits and controls divided between women and men in different socio-economic and cultural categories.
