Associations, women are still considered as indirect beneficiaries through
their husband water rights.

in the water allocation.
- to establish a set of indicators of performance of the gender approach in the irrigation sector and to involve women’s role in the water management programmes in order to improve women’s conditions in general and the effective development and the efficient use of the resources.
