Introduction and Context

The Collection of Ingenious Initiatives for Sustainable Urban Development, hosted by UN-Habitat, will spotlight the contributions made by women to the design and implementation of socially and environmentally sustainable urban and architectural development around the world. Women's participation and leadership in architecture and urban planning facilitates the mainstreaming of gender equality in the design of built environments, which is essential to the full integration of women and girls in the economic, social, political and cultural life of cities.

By featuring your stories of ingenious women and women-led initiatives, we aim to build knowledge-sharing networks across borders and inspire the next generation of citizens, architects and urban planners to help shape their environments for a sustainable future.

Thank you for joining us on this mission.
