Welcome to the United Nations

Gender/women as producers and traders

Both the Addis Agenda and the 2030 Agenda establish a strong link between gender equality and women’s empowerment on one hand, and achieving sustained, inclusive and equitable economic growth and sustainable development on the other. They both call for gender mainstreaming in the formulation and implementation of all financial, economic, environmental and social policies.

A better understanding of the issues behind women participation in international trade would also require an additional effort in the collection of more disaggregated data and firm level information which are not part of official international trade statistics.
