The dynamic role of gender and social inclusion. Achieving internationally agreed water-related goals

Water carries political, cultural, religious, social, economic and environmental significance in our lives. Access to safe drinking water and sanitation has farreaching consequences for achieving equality and creating an inclusive society. When government policies and programmes focus upon the well-being of the socially excluded and vulnerable—especially women and children—they become instrumental in bringing about necessary changes and addressing the most formidable challenges. Combined with thoughtfully designed regulatory and environmental frameworks, policies and programmes are the key drivers for engaging people, which allows them to understand problems and be part of the solution. People then become the force to holistically contribute to improving their own circumstances. Civil society organizations and the private sector—when keeping sight of the principles of participation, equity and transparency— become the most capable facilitators in the improved and sustainable management of water—a resource so vital to human life.
