UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals calls for gender equality and social inclusion to be fully integrated into any development effort. In Papua New Guinea, UN Women works towards promoting efficient, well-built and well-maintained market infrastructure that fosters inclusive growth for all people and ensure the dividends of economic growth are equitably shared. Infrastructure is too often considered to be gender-neutral, but infrastructure projects do no benefit men and women equally. Infrastructure can either enhance or limit the opportunities of its users.
Market infrastructure development need to promote women’s safety, promote their business, and offer avenues for business expansion and growth. Gender equality dimensions to consider when developing markets include differences in terms of who can safely and readily access the markets and income generating opportunities it creates; risks for communities near the markets; and representation of women in marketplace authorities or governing bodies. Infrastructure should enhance the experiences of its users, and markets must be built with the end in mind. In PNG, markets are dominated by women, yet they are least likely to be involved in the development or construction of a market, nor in the management and operational functions.
UN Women Papua New Guinea has been working in building and strengthen market governance and women’s livelihood activities in markets for over 10 years. UN Women supports markets in 11 provinces in the country. This work is delivered through the UN Women Safe and Prosperous Districts (SPD) Programme.
The Safe and Prosperous Districts Programme comprises two components; the first aspect involves infrastructure, ensuring that it is gender responsive and caters for the needs of women, who are majority of those who use the space. The second component involves social and economic interventions to strengthen market governance and management as well equip market vendors with skills, tools and knowledge to enhance their economic potentials in markets and increase their access and control over their income.
