The whole week will be live-streamed: UN WebTV livestream
UN Women publication 2022 on progress on the SDGs and the interlinkages with gender / women/ SDG5.
Please read the report: especially page 12 on women and water issues.
Important to note for our work as women for water, is that there is still no real indicator on gender <> water and sanitation, despite the work UN Water / IMI is doing on this.
The situation has deteriorated again!
It also means our efforts to connect SDG4, SDG5 and SDG6 are still extremely needed and valuable.
With the upcoming 2023 UN Water Conference we need to enhance our efforts once again and hold everybody accountable on policies written, commitments made and implementation lagging behind.

REPORT ON A CASE STUDY MADE BY Women for Water Partnership:
With Women Better Results in Water Management
“With Women Better Results in Water Management”, is the title of a recent publication of Women for Water Partnership (WfWP). The study was funded by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). (full report: here)
The reason behind initiating this study was that an earlier study on the impact of women’s participation showed that in some corners of the private sector, it is more common to measure the impact of women in decision-making positions and showing positive results – contrary to the public sector. Companies with higher numbers of women in leadership teams outperform those with fewer women, often by 30%. Moreover, leadership styles more frequently used by women are the most effective in addressing the global challenges of the future and critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
