Women, energy and water in the Himalayas: integration of women in planning and management

United Nations Environment Programme (2005)

The policy guidelines were developed as part of the pilot project 'Incorporating Needs and Roles of Women in Water and Energy Management in Rural Areas in South Asia-Capacity Building in Rural Areas of the Himalayas'. Women were provided with hands on training on the management of energy and water using the training manual developed by the project. The experiences gained were used to develop the policy guidelines for involving women in water and energy activities at the local level.
