Abstract: Gender is an important aspect of multidisciplinary provision of water and environmental sanitation services; however it is not just the responsibility of social scientists, but the whole team. Training engineers about gender has been difficult, or even not attempted due to perceived professional boundaries, but a research project looking into ways gender can be “mainstreamed” into infrastructure development has produced a new way of getting the message across to a technical audience. This however may be in a form that social scientists may not recognize.
