Water dialogues: Where are the women in the decision-making process?

The registration deadline has expired.

Whilst women’s participation has increased in recent years, the participation in high-level processes remains at a staggering 2 %. The study consists of a comparative case study on decision-making from a gendered perspective and examines three different basins: the Nile basin (North-eastern Africa), the Rhine basin (Europe) and Chu-Talas basin (Central Asia). 


  • Maria Vink, Director of Transboundary Water Management at SIWI
  •  Alexandra Said, Programme Officer at SIWI
  • Jennifer Sehring, Senior Lecturer in Water Governance and Diplomacy at IHE Delft
  • Rozemarijn ter Horst, Lecturer in Water Diplomacy at IHE Delft

The objectives of the study are to asses:

  1. If and how gender indeed impacts decision-making;
  2. Which effects women’s participation in decision-making have for water cooperation and conflict prevention; and
  3. How to effectively strengthen inclusive high-level decision-making.
