Diverting the flow

SaciWATERs comes up with another publication…

“Diverting the Flow” provides an overview of gender, equity and water issues relevant to south Asia. The essays empirically illustrate and theoretically argue how gender intersects with other axes of social difference such as class, caste, ethnicity, age and religion to shape water access, use and management practices. The book clearly shows how understanding, and changing the use, distribution and management of water is conditional upon understanding and accommodating gender relations.

Dr. Anjal Prakash has also a chapter in this.
