Abstract: THE GENDER WATER Alliance (GWA) was established in June 2000, to promote gender mainstreaming (GM) as an integral part of Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM). GWA is an international network open to all organisations and individuals involved in IWRM and currently consists of 171 members from all over the world. It is hosted by a secretariat at the IRC-International Water and Sanitation Centre in the Netherlands and governed by a steering committee elected by the members. It is an Associate Programme of the Global Water Partnership (GWP) funded by governments of the Netherlands and United Kingdom. As a network the Alliance is working to achieve equity and equality amongst women and men, irrespective of age, colour, religion, culture, languages or income, in the use, management, and development of sustainable water resources. This is by advocating for equitable distribution of responsibilities, burdens and benefits. http://www.genderandwateralliance.org/ The GWA conducted a series of e-conferences (Jan-May 2002) and the Water Engineering and Development Centre (WEDC) facilitated and consolidated the lessons learnt from these on behalf of the alliance.
