Why should a gender equality perspective be mainstreamed into the water resources management sector' How can this be done' Developed primarily as a reference tool for Sida staff at headquarters and in country offices, this handbook aims to provide guidance in applying a gender equality perspective in one specific area of natural resources management. Divided into three parts, it presents a general discussion of the links between gender equality and water resources management programming, and a brief overview of the rationale for a gender perspective in this sector from both an efficiency/effectiveness and social justice perspective. The final section comprises a series of questions to be asked at each stage of the project planning cycle - sector analysis, project formulation/appraisals, annual reviews and evaluation - with comments on why these questions are relevant, and possible actions that can be taken in response to each.
