Guide on Integrating Gender into Infrastructure Development in Asia and the Pacific: Vertical Structures


The design of vertical structures must take into careful consideration how they are accessed and used by women, men, girls and boys and it must reflect their needs. Good design askes relevant questions including who uses this space and for what purpose? Are special accommodations required? This practical guidance on gender mainstreaming in vertical structures provides specific ‘how-to’ guidance together with checklists across the project lifespan in five subsectors (detention facilities, educational facilities, health facilities, public administration facilities, and police and border posts), with context-specific Asia and Pacific regional information and case studies to showcase what socially-inclusive and gender-equitable infrastructure designs look like in reality.
