IDW 2024 Gender Panel: Navigating Gender and Water Challenges Globally

February 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

OCIC is kicking off International Development Week 2024 with the expert panel – ‘Navigating Gender and Water Challenges Globally’!

Join us virtually on February 1, 2024 at 11:00am – 12:30pm EST.

The gendered impact of lack of safe and accessible water poses a serious equality issue. Thus, the focus of this panel will be on providing insights into global and local commitments on gender and water, positive and sustainable transformations advocating for gender-inclusive water management strategies including WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) priorities, youth perspectives on water and gender, women’s water leadership and mitigating the disproportionate impacts of water-related challenges on women and girls.

Recognizing the crucial need for collective action at the intersection of gender and water issues, we hope that you will join us for this important discussion.

Interpretation: The languages of this event will be English and French; interpretation services will be offered.
