Engineers and technicians working on development projects are becoming more aware of the need for the participation of local people, and that women, in particular, should be involved closely at all stages of the project cycle. This booklet sets out why engineers should involve both men and women in infrastructure projects and why women’s participation has a special emphasis. It introduces ways in which engineers and technicians can ensure their projects focus on the needs of men and women.
