Women, Water & Rivers. Kathmandu, Nepal. March 6th - 10th 2019

This year’s Day of Action for Rivers theme is in celebration of the role of women in protecting and managing our rivers. Women are often the primary users of water in their households and communities. Tasked with securing, maintaining, and using water resources in agriculture, fisheries, forest and land management, women sustain life through their relationships to water. Despite this, women are far less represented in decisions about how water and rivers are managed and developed. Deep inequalities persist, with men holding a majority of the decision making power and influence.

International Rivers is working to ignite and promote a global movement of women water leaders. This movement will come together for the first time at the Women and Rivers Congress, on March 6th - 10th.
