Overview

While many cities are hubs of economic growth, employment, and cultural life, urbanization has resulted in pronounced socioeconomic inequalities, exclusion, and segregation. The objective of this gender issue guide on urban planning and design is to:

  • Increase understanding of gender concerns and needs in urban planning and design;
  • Develop capacity to address gender issues in select human settlement areas 
  • Encourage integration of gender perspectives into policies, projects, and programmes for sustainable urban development 
  • Support institutionalization of the culture of gender mainstreaming and gender equality through the implementation of gender-sensitive projects/programmes and the monitoring of gender mainstreaming progress
