Worlds of Water

Worlds of Water Fluid Bonds: Views on Gender and Water edited by Kuntala Lahiri-Dutt; STREE, Kolkata, 2006;
CHRISTINE SIJBESMA The book Fluid Bonds: Views on Gender and Water differs from many other books on gender and development in several ways. First, it combines case studies from the south and the north. Chapters are located in North and South America, south and south-east Asia, South Africa and Australia. The authors also look at gender and water in different subsectors: irrigated agriculture, fisheries, domestic water supply and sanitation, large dams, animal husbandry, aquaculture and integrated water resources management (the latter three in connection with overall water use and not as subsectors by themselves). Health aspects meet with productive uses of water and time, and globalisation with traditional story telling.
