One way to find out would be to ask who the primary collectors, users and managers of water are in one’s community, according to a new guide on gender and climate change developed by the Institute for Gender and Development Studies, Mona Campus Unit (IGDS MCU) at the University of the West Indies Mona in Jamaica.
