News Mainstreaming Gender Dimension into Integrated Water Resource Development and Management, Samira Al Zoughbi, February 2008

The Working Paper series of the National Agricultural Policy Center (NAPC) aims at supporting the Syrian development and modernization process by enriching public availability of documentation on agricultural economics and policy studies conducted at the National Agricultural Policy Center.

The Syrian government has recognized the necessity for enhancing investment in the social lives
quality and integrating gender issues as fundamental indicators in the governmental projects
and development programmes. Therefore, the process of involving women in the economic,
social and political life has definitely accelerated in the past 5 to 10 years. Syria, as many
countries, agreed on most of the international agreements and clearances related to women and
the “Convention of Eliminating of All Forms of Discrimination against Women” (CEDAW) on March 23, 2003 as well as on other human rights (Syrian Commission for Family Affairs, 2006).
