At the Women’s Dialogue in Water and Sanitation, held in Dakar on the 20th March, 2022 under the theme “Supporting Growth and Promoting Visibility of Women WASH Professionals: Key to Success of the Sector” held under the auspices of the 9th World water Forum; the Network of Professional Women in WASH came up with the following for adoption by Governments, Policy Makers, WASH Organisations and Programme Implementors:

1. Closing the Gap: In terms of growth, we recognise that we have a long way to go in meeting SDG 6. It is needful to create space for people, especially women with multidisciplinary backgrounds, to enter the sector to help address issues of inclusion and infrastructural gaps.

2. SDG 6: We will push for Policies and Strategies relevant for attaining SDG6 to ensure sustainable water and sanitation for all.

3. Networking: We will be at the fore-front in mobilizing critical mass of women for leadership, through capacity building, sharing of experiences and learning.

4. Retention & Growth: Support women to build technical, vocational and relevant skills to ensure their retention and growth in the sector.

5. Participation: Enhance participation of women in WASH by creating an enabling environment for women’s economic development.

6. Monitoring: Develop evidence-based mechanisms to help track and consolidate the gains made so far in increasing the representation and visibility of women in the WASH sector.
