Gender perspectives in urban planning

Launched in 2014, the UN-Habitat's Global Urban Lectures series provides open-access discussions on "cities and urbanization," for academics and the general public. Ana Falu leads this talk, "Gender perspectives in urban planning," which focuses on "gender omission" in traditional planning processes. Falu is an architect, professor, and researcher at the National University of Cordoba and the Coordinator of the UN-Habitat UNI Gender Hub. Her lecture opens by noting that "women are omitted or have little participation in decision-making related to cities, housing, and planning decisions." In the remaining 14 minutes, she considers accessibility and equality, presenting both problems and proposed solutions. At the link above, readers can access a YouTube recording of the talk (originally aired in 2016). To view additional readings and resources for Falu's talk, as well as other lectures from UN-Habitat, visit the Global Urban Lectures section of the UN-Habitat website (following the URL included in the video description). For easy browsing, lectures can be sorted by Theme (including: environment, planning and design, and social inclusion).
