This project is to provide a review of qualitative and quantitative data on gender in agriculture and water in Mekong river basin. It is part of a broader research project led by International Water Management Institute that aims to address gaps in spatially referenced information on gender in agriculture and water, and provide a new perspective on gender inequalities by analyzing gendered disparities across four river basins: Ganges, Volta, Mekong and Nile.

The project work is funded by the IWMI-led WLE program.
