Mainstreaming Gender in Water Management–A Practical Journey to Sustainability: Resource Guide
United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Gender and Water Alliance (GWA)

This guide is a reference document to assist staff in mainstreaming gender within the context of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). It builds on existing initiatives by summarizing the available tools and materials on gender mainstreaming in IWRM. The resource guide is meant to:

• Improve the sustainability and effectiveness of water-related activities through incorporation of gender equality perspectives throughout the project cycle;

• Improve approaches to the planning, implementation, management and monitoring of IWRM; and

• Improve understanding and awareness of gender concepts through an easy reference to existing materials and tools.

The resource guide is not a set of guidelines, nor is it a step-by-step tool kit for gender mainstreaming. It is a reference guide that should be used in conjunction with the texts and materials to which it refers. It gives a brief overview and summary of issues within the different categories of IWRM and is designed to raise awareness and promote learning and analysis on the relevant social equity and gender issues. Each section may be reviewed on its own and used to raise awareness about its topic. The primary target groups for the resource guide are program managers, gender specialists and researchers within the field of IWRM.

Mississippi Embayment Regional Ground Water Study
National Risk Management Research Laboratory, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Research and Development

Increased water usage in the southeastern U.S. tri-state area of Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas poses a dilemma to ensuring long-term sustainability of the quantity and quality of groundwater resources that underlie the region. Agriculture, municipal and industry demand for groundwater is stressing fresh water aquifers. Instances of groundwater contamination have closed water-treatment facilities and many other potential contaminant sources could threaten human health. To address these threats, federal, state and local government have initiated a four-phase research effort to understand, model, and suggest best management practices for the groundwater resources in the region. This booklet describes that plan.

Nutrient Pollution: A Persistent Threat to Waterways
Nutrient Pollution: A Persistent Threat to Waterways
Environmental Health Perspectives, James Manue

Passage of the Clean Water Act of 1972 brought many improvements to surface waters by curbing much of the toxic and organic pollution going into waterways.

Roadmapping for Advancing Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) Processes
Global Water Partnership Technical Committee, United Nations

The goods and services provided by water play a central role in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The importance of water management has been further highlighted by the recent reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and others that have warned that climate change will have extensive impacts on water resources. This fact sheet describes the Integrated Water Resource Management approach and how it facilitates mainstreaming water issues in the political economy of a country, and as such in all societal sectors. The approach focuses on better allocation of water to different water-user groups and in so doing stresses the importance of involving all stakeholders in the decision- making process. It also calls for gender mainstreaming in land and water management decision-making. And it supports the integration of water supply and use with the management of waste, sewage and groundwater protection, while recognizing that the protection and quality improvements of water are preconditions for sustaining both human livelihoods and natural ecosystems. This approach is also recognized as a framework for the adaptation of water management to climate change and the management of floods and droughts.

The case studies have been produced in a common format to allow for easy comparison, with the following themes considered:

• Problems of water resources management that need to be addressed,

• Context in which the problems and solutions need to take place,

• Decisions and actions taken to execute the roadmap process,

• Outcomes of the decisions and actions taken,

• Lessons learned that will be of value to others involved in similar situation, and

• Relevance of the case to IWRM, i.e. how the case exemplifies the problems and solutions associated with IWRM.

Status Report on Integrated water Resources Management and water Efficiency Plans
UN-Water (2008). Status Report on IWRM and Water Efficiency Plans for CSD16, Prepared for the 16th session of the Commission on Sustainable Development

Managers, whether in the government or private sectors, have to make difficult decisions on water allocation. More and more they have to apportion diminishing supplies between ever-increasing demands. Drivers such as demographic and climatic changes further increase the stress on water resources. The traditional fragmented approach is no longer viable and a more holistic approach to water management is essential. This booklet discusses how the Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) approach is now being viewed as the way forward for efficient, equitable and sustainable development and management of the world’s limited water resources and for coping with conflicting demands.

Study of the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing on Drinking Water Resources: Progress Report
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Research and Development

In 2011, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began research under its Plan to Study the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing on Drinking Water Resources. The purpose of the study was to assess the potential impacts of hydraulic fracturing on drinking water resources, if any, and to identify the driving factors that may affect the severity and frequency of such impacts. EPA scientists focused primarily on hydraulic fracturing of shale formations to extract natural gas, with some study of other oil- and gas-producing formations, including tight sands, and coal beds. The EPA designed the scope of the research around five stages of the hydraulic fracturing water cycle. Each stage of the cycle was associated with a primary research question:

• Water acquisition: What are the possible impacts of large volume water withdrawals from ground and surface waters on drinking water resources?

• Chemical mixing: What are the possible impacts of hydraulic fracturing fluid surface spills on or near well pads on drinking water resources?

• Well injection: What are the possible impacts of the injection and fracturing process on drinking water resources?

• Flowback and produced water: What are the possible impacts of flowback and produced water (collectively referred to as “hydraulic fracturing wastewater”) surface spills on or near well pads on drinking water resources?

• Wastewater treatment and waste disposal: What are the possible impacts of inadequate treatment of hydraulic fracturing wastewater on drinking water resources?

This report describes 18 research projects. Information presented as part of this report cannot be used to draw conclusions about potential impacts to drinking water resources from hydraulic fracturing. The research projects are organized according to five different types of research activities: analysis of existing data, scenario evaluations, laboratory studies, toxicity assessments, and case studies.
