The Handbook for Gender-Inclusive Urban Planning and Design aims to fill the gap between gender-inclusive policy and practice, and respond to the historic exclusion of women, girls, and sexual and gender minorities from the processes of urban planning and design.
The handbook has been written to support World Bank staff, clients, contractors, and consultants involved in implementing projects within the Bank’s urban development portfolio.
It may also be a valuable resource for external practitioners seeking to take concrete steps toward a more gender-inclusive approach.
