The talk lays down the contours of research around gender and water. Starting with a conceptualization of gender, it presents the rationale for a gender perspective in water access and management. Gender intersects with other axes of social differentiation to shape the experience of water insecurity, even as policy approaches tend to be gender blind. Policy-makers often confuse ‘gender’ to mean ‘women’, and this can distort an understanding of impacts of water supply interventions. Finally, the talk focuses on the need to understand the transformation of gender relations around water, and processes that may shape this, such as urbanization, rural-urban migration or changing use of common property resources.Venue: SaciWATERs Conference hall, B-87, 3rd avenue, Sainikpuri, Secunderabad -500094.
