Women workers play an important role in addressing          
environmental problems in the workplace, problems that directly
affect their health and security, from the level of individual
factories to the national level. Participation varies from place to
place, but in general women have addressed issues of
environmental health and safety at work and fostered
cooperation between employers and employees and with
government agencies to solve problems. Improving the work
environment also helps protect the environment of communities
in industrial zones.

Sustainable Development. This paper depicts some of the on-
going blocks to gender equity at global and regional levels.
Touching on a vast array of issues: human rights and security;
poverty; access to and management of resources; trade and
finance; development; and health, it outlines some means to
tackle these problems and proposes some key questions which
need to be addressed by the Johannesburg Summit.
We believe that it is essential to engage more women in   
accessing and using Information and Communication
Technologies (ICTs) for equality and development in Africa. We
believe that women should be able to use ICTs strategically in
support of women’s empowerment and agendas in order to:
facilitate networking and information exchange: support
solidarity campaigns and collaborative actions: mainstream
issues of concern to women: ensure that women are able to
participate equally in civil and public life.

Gender mainstreaming within water and sanitation projects

in access to and control over water resources, and access to
sanitation services.
