With Mariet Hervot on 23rd Feb 2016

Women in Water and Sanitation Network was launched on 23rd February 2016 with the objective of reinforcing the role of women in management of water and sanitation in Kenya. The Association is registered under the Societies Act and recognized by the Ministry of Water and Irrigation.

Women and girls make up more than half the world’s population. They are often more affected than boys and men by poverty, climate change, food insecurity, lack of healthcare, and global economic crises. Their contributions and leadership are central to finding a solution. Without supporting women, the world will not be able to achieve sustainable development goals. Water and Sanitation are at the very core of achievement of sustainable development. SDG 6 does not only have a strong linkage to other SDGs, but it also underpins them.

There is a gender gap in water management leadership at all levels. Women are rarely involved in decisions relating to water policies and strategies. To narrow the gender gap in leadership at all levels of water sector and ensure water security for all, there is need to involve more women in leadership especially at policy level.
