Trade, Gender and Development - Advocating Inclusive and Gender-Sensitive Economic Development On a Global Level

UNCTAD plays a key role in ensuring that economic policies –  trade policy in particular – become instrumental in the achievement of gender equality and women’s economic empowerment.

The UNCTAD Trade, Gender and Development Programme has since 2010 been developing a portfolio of country case studies on the impacts of trade liberalization and facilitation on gender equality and women’s well-being in target developing and least developed countries. The studies describe the gender-differentiated outcomes of trade policy and draw lessons on policymaking. Using a variety of qualitative and quantitative methodologies and a range of multi-sectoral and sectoral approaches, the case studies contribute to the yet limited literature on the impact of trade policy on gender outcomes such as employment, income, empowerment and intra-household relations. The studies bring to the forefront of the analysis intersecting patterns of disparity relating to gender, income, race and spatial location; they also integrate social and cultural factors into economic analysis.
