International Women’s Day 2022

The theme for International Women’s Day, 8 March, 2022 (IWD 2022) is, “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”, recognizing the contribution of women and girls around the world, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, to build a more sustainable future for all.

GWP joins the worldwide IWD celebrations every year, in the right-hand side are links to previous years IWD campaigns. This year we will launch a multimedia publication on Gender Equality in Water Governance: 10 Stories of Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships.

The ten stories featured demonstrate the power of women-led and women-focused multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs) for fostering a more inclusive, equal, and water secure world. 

These stories are part of our GWP’s Water ChangeMaker Awards, a global competition which identifies and celebrates the work of groups and organisations that build water and climate resilience.

In the multimedia publication, you will hear from the people behind the change stories answering the questions:

Why did you decide to get involved with this project and how do you believe it has impacted gender equality? What was the role of various stakeholders in this process and how did you go about mobilising them? In terms of gender work, what would you not have been able to achieve without involving those stakeholders?

Stay tuned for more!
