ESCAP is taking steps to mainstream gender in all its activities, to ensure that gender equality is addressed holistically in order to develop forward-looking strategies and contribute to efforts towards gender equality, poverty reduction and economic growth in support of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Against this background, ESCAP undertook a study project aimed to assess both opportunities and challenges of women workforce, including the transport and logistics sector; analyze initiatives and national policies; drawing good practices and national experiences to mainstream gender issues and promote gender inclusiveness in employment. The study findings are published as a Working Paper, titled “Mind the Gender Gap in workforce, including transport and logistics: the perspective from Sri Lanka and beyond.”
