"The current water crisis in the Asian Region is a major threat to economic development andpoverty eradication. In the year 2000, over 670 million people lacked acce ss to safe water and 1.9 billion lacked access to basic sanitation in Asia.[...] In India, UN-HABITAT is working with four cities of the state of Mad hya Pradesh, namely Bhopal, Gwalior, Indore and Jabalpur, for which Asian Development Bank has approved a loan of US$181 million for the improvement and expansion of urban water supply, sewarge and sanitation, drainage and solid waste management. [...] Such an initiative, however, can only be successful if it addressesthe concerns of half the population, namely women and girls, and ensures their effective participation in its governance. The gender mainstreaming component of the initiative seeks to achieve this objective through the empowerment of women and the promotion of sustainable livelihoods. It focuses on the central concern of women and girls who, with the increasing feminization of poverty, constitute the majority of the urban poor." - from the director's foreword.Very good. 35.00
