Lessons learned: Reducing women’s domestic workload through water investments
April 2016

There is a recognized need in the water sector for more accurate data on access to water in terms of the distance travelled and the time needed to collect water to meet all household needs, and who or what combination of people are involved in water collection.

More information is also required on how the time burden most often felt by women is associated with other socio-economic or demographic factors, such as economic status and age.
