Urban planning and governance requires gender sensitivity if it is to be sustainable, equitable, and effective. ‘Mainstreaming’ gender considerations into planning processes takes urban planning beyond the realm of making service and infrastructure management more efficient, and into solving issues of social, economic and political equity – promoting civic engagement among women and minorities in the process.
