Investing in gender equality and women’s empowerment can unlock human potential on a transformational scale, improving our ability to tackle global water and sanitation challenges. USAID seeks to ensure that women are empowered to effectively advocate for their perspectives and priorities, and that they are able to fully engage as managers, partners, and entrepreneurs in water-related activities and enterprises. This collection page features a variety of technical, multimedia, and learning resources illustrating the many ways gender equality elevates entire communities.
