Advocating inclusive and gender-responsive economic development on a global level
Through its Trade, Gender and Development Programme, UNCTAD helps its member States:
Assess the distinct effect of economic policies, and especially trade policy, on men and women, and boys and girls.
Identify gender-based constraints that impede inclusive development and devise strategies and policy measures to overcome them.
Strengthen their capacity to mainstream gender into trade policy formulation and implementation, and in negotiations of trade and other agreements at the multilateral, regional and bilateral levels.
