Safe Cities Scoping Study

Authors/editor(s): UN Women Timor-Leste

Following years of advocacy from the women’s movement on the problem of sexual harassment and violence against women in public spaces, UN Women conducted a safe cities scoping study with diverse partners in the capital Dili, with exploratory discussions for conducting a safety audit in 3 Dili sites and the Baucau central marketplace. The Study was conducted and validated between November 2017 and July 2018. The Scoping Study report provides an overview of key findings and recommendations, which will inform future interventions to improve women’s safety in public spaces.
