Introducing the new Gender Strategy, GWP Chair Dr. Ursula Schaefer-Preuss said that the work behind it has been a personal priority. She thanked GWP Steering Committee member Alice Bouman Dentener for her significant contributions to realizing this strategy.
Dr. Brian McIntosh, Senior Lecturer and Education Program Manager at the International WaterCentre (IWC) in Australia, supported the launch by highlighting the joint GWP-IWC scholarship initiative to promote women leadership in water management. This is one example of the concrete work GWP intends to pursue in order to support women leaders and have an impact in women’s lives on the ground.
In addition to GWP’s network of over 3,000 partner organisations, GWP also reaches out to a wide range of stakeholders in different sectors. The newest strategic allies of GWP are the French Water Partnership, the European Water Partnership and the UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education.
The new collaboration agreements will benefit all partners in helping to share knowledge on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), advocacy, capacity building, education and research.
