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).
