This report presents the outcome of an Expert Group Meeting held in
December 2008 to address the question of gender disaggregated data. The
meeting was intended to support efforts to enhance gender equity in the
water and sanitation sectors within the prevailing framework of the MDGs.
The challenge and added value of the meeting was to explore ways to bridge
the gap between conceptual or theoretical comprehensions of gender issues
and everyday grassroots realities of differential access to and use of
water and sanitation.
