Economic growth and gender equality are positively correlated. Although gender issues have been widely debated in the context of urbanization and urban poverty alleviation policy framework, it has yet to be addressed perceptibly. Encapsulating insightful policy recommendations exclusively on urban poverty and gender issues is necessary for successful implementation of existing programmes, alongside keeping tabs on emerging issues. This edition of the State of the Urban Poor Report focuses on gender and urban poverty. It has been envisaged keeping in mind the critical need to examine gender issues relevant to urban poverty alleviation practices and mechanisms, as well as to find ways of bringing gender sensitivity into the urban management practices in India. The report presents the key findings of leading international urban poverty and gender policy experts from various countries such as the UK, the US, Australia, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, and Kenya. In addition, leading practitioners and policymakers from India have shared their experiences in India and elsewhere. The volume discusses themes such as dimensions of urban poverty; current urban poverty alleviation approaches; gender, shelter, and property rights; urban livelihoods; ensuring urban safety through gender-sensitive approach; and access to basic urban services through gender perspective.
