Inclusive Cities - Towards Gender Equality, Youth Empowerment and Non-Discrimination

This paper examines the situation in Afghan cities for:

  • women and girls
  • returnees and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)
  • youth
  • ethnic minorities

Common to all is their heightened socio-economic marginalisation and vulnerability, exclusion from urban decision-making, and weaker urban safety and security. The paper highlights that framing their priorities and participation as ‘cross-cutting’ is not enough. Dedicated actions and resources are required if we are to genuinely achieve inclusive cities in Afghanistan.
