Abstract

ESCAP-SSWA POLICY BRIEF No.3

South Asia has emerged as one of the most dynamic subregions in the world but its potential is undermined by inequalities, including gender inequalities across all dimensions of economic and social life -- in access to education, health, employment, opportunities and resources and the rights of women to be treated equally with men. Such impediments prevent South Asia from achieving truly equitable, inclusive and sustainable development. Building on the outcomes of the ESCAP programme on Enabling entrepreneurship for women’s economic empowerment in Asia- Pacific, including its South Asian component and related studies, this Policy Brief makes a case for prioritizing women’s entrepreneurship in South Asia as a strategy for realizing inclusive and sustainable growth.
