The links between gender, poverty and water are easiest to identify when we look at domestic water use and sanitation practices. Gender is also a key variable when we look at economic activities, at income generation in general and farming in particular. Men and women should be equally represented when decisions are made that affect productive activities they are engaged in to assure equal access and control over water, land and markets. Poor men and women are often the first to suffer when the aquatic environment is degraded.
