Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces: Global results report

This report on UN Women’s Global Flagship Programme Initiative,Safe Cities and Safe Public Spaces, shares achievements gleaned from various participating city programmes in Africa, Latin America, the Arab States, Asia and the Pacific, North America, and Europe. A series of stories illustrate what authorities, grass-roots women, women’s organizations and other community partners can do as part of a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to prevent and respond to sexual harassment and other forms of sexual violence against women and girls in public spaces. Many of their initiatives have successfully enhanced safety, including through a focus on the most impoverished urban areas. The report places particular emphasis on chronicling interventions in the four outcome areas of the global flagship programme initiative.
