UNESCO WWAP - Water and Gender - Call for Abstracts

Water and Gender

International Workshop in Pisa from 28 to 31 January 2025. 

Call for abstracts 

The workshop is jointly organised by Pisa University and UNESCO WWAP in the frame of the Multi-stakeholder Coalition for Gender Equality in Water, with the goal of addressing the need for robust conceptual contributions and intersectoral discussions. 

The event will bring together water and gender scientists, governmental institutions, and practitioners, and will be centered around five main topics, our "gamechangers" proposed in the Water Action Agenda:

  • Gender equal funding 
  • Policy instruments for inclusion and equality in water 
  • Women's leadership, participation and decision-making in water  
  • Inclusive access, use and management of water 
  • Gender equality and the data gap 

Abstract submission is now open until May 30th, 2024, and relevant information can be found on the project website: https://waterandgender25.dst.unipi.it/
