Gender intersects with other factors such as race, ethnicity, economic, social and political aspects and geographical locations. Divided into four parts this book considers global discourses on water; water culture and the economy; water, time and place; and water, women and agency. It highlights the achievements and failures, in both developed countries and developing countries, and urges the mainstreaming of gender in the water sector, particularly in decision making in both North and South. The book will be of immediate interest to academics, development planners, administrators, educators, activists and water scientists.
