Realizing Gender Equality in Cities
Cities Alliance is delighted to share this guidance note for development practitioners on “Realizing Gender-Equality in Cities.” Here we provide a simple but holistic framework for gender mainstreaming in cities, with ten intriguing case studies that demonstrate how mainstreaming gender does not have to be a specialised effort.
Too often development partners consider Gender Mainstreaming as a specialized project, or fail to provide practical examples for decision-makers and sectoral specialists within development agencies. Against this background and to inspire all those that programme for cities, this guidance note aims to illustrate how results of gender-responsive programming for and in cities can be realized. It provides a simple but holistic framework for Gender-Mainstreaming in Cities and illustrative examples of projects.
