Toolkit on Sex-Disaggregated Water Data
In response to a 2013 Survey by the UN Statistical Commission revealing that gendered water data is among the least available of national-level indicators, WWAP has created a series of toolkits for gender-sensitive water assessment and monitoring that provides users with a methodological framework and key-indicators to assess the status of freshwater resources on a national, regional and global scale. Within toolkits 1 and 2, a list of 100 recommended gender-sensitive water indicators is provided along with a methodological approach for field testing, to be selected by a variety of users based on relevance to their work. Toolkit 3 outlines guidelines for data gathering to serve as universal standards of ethical and authentic collection and to support adaptability across a wide variety of users and contexts. Lastly, toolkit 4 contains a series of questionnaires to collect general data from interview/focus groups and intra-household surveys, and across 5 indicators on water governance, safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), decision-making and knowledge productions, transboundary water resources management (TWM), and water for industrial and agricultural uses.
