Titre : GEWAMED Mainstreaming gender dimensions into water resources development and management in the Mediterranean region

Région : Méditerranée

Code du projet : 517696 FP6-INCO

Durée : From 2006-02-15 to 2011-08-14

Descriptif
The project plans to build an extensive knowledge base for mainstreaming gender dimensions into IWRM. To achieve this objective the project will build a regional network and establish 6 national ones using Internet technology in, at least 6, countries of t he South East Mediterranean Region(SEMR). The regional network will be essentially a mean for exchanging experiences, disseminate results and allow for enhanced coordination among national projects’ activities and participants. The project will improve the cooperation and dialogue among partners and external organizations interested in this subject through the participation in 3 regional workshops and an International Conference that will be held at the end of project life.
The project will interact with ot her MPC projects, like MELIA, INECO and WADI, that also focus on information, knowledge management to promote coordination and exchange of experiences. It is also expected that the project will contribute to improve the coordination of gender activities in an IWRM context and to disseminate information, particularly in the rural areas. For this purpose GEWAMED will establish a National Central Focal Points in each SEMR country that will interact with the other collaborating institutions involved in the wat er sector. This will be not only a coordination mechanism but also an important mean to collect and disseminate gender information spread among many institutions.
One of the most distinctive feature of GEWAMED is precisely the establishment of a knowledge base for acquiring and disseminating gender information at national level. The project may also contribute to the adoption of national policies and other related instruments (strategies, approaches, guidelines, incentives and legislation) by involving decis ion makers and politicians in the processes of mainstreaming gender dimensions in IWRM. For this purpose the project will organize at least one national policy seminar in each SEMR country.
