This collective work looks at the origins, examples, and consequences of the gender divide with regards to the access, use, and control of water in the Sahel. The book draws on the IDRC-funded research project, "Effectiveness of women’s economic rights: the case of access to water for agricultural use in Mauritania, Niger, and Senegal." The African Network for Integrated Development (RADI) carried out the research that explored the tensions over use and control among various water consumers and the relevance of the impact on women's access to such resources.

The research outlines how to promote women’s equitable access to economic resources, in particular their access to water reserved for agricultural use. A transnational advocacy committee was created and tasked with promoting the uptake of the research findings.
