Localising the gender equality goal through urban planning tools in South Asia

Guidance and systemization of experiences

The priority actions suggested in this paper for the first 1,000 days of SDG 5 implementation are multi-pronged and multi-level in nature. Policies, legal and regulatory instruments, plans, programmes, and financial instruments can be the levers of initiating change on the ground if aligned suitably to respond to different gender needs. On the other hand, organisational capacity in terms of skills, awareness, human resources and technology is a critical enabler for initiating, implementing and sustaining interventions. The priority actions are proposed to make urban planning systems gender-responsive under the larger umbrella of ‘inclusive cities’ and to address the agenda of ‘leave no one behind’ (LNOB). The paper intends to contribute to the wider discourse on women’s right to the city’s economic opportunities and social and cultural resources, as well as the right to representation, and how these can form the basis for attaining the targets under SDGs 5, 6, and 11. This paper also highlights the need for a coordinated approach to SDG implementation by demonstrating the case of gender equality and urban planning.
