Key Safety and Discrimination Issues to Consider in Local Marketplaces

Safety & Discrimination Assessment Summary Report 2017

This report provides a summary of the key findings and recommendations from the rapid safety and discrimination assessments carried out in 22 market locations across Fiji, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. The assessments revealed challenges faced by women market vendors around their personal safety. Safe, accessible and inclusive work places are critical for women’s economic empowerment. The assessment results are meant to inform a range of Markets for Change (M4C) project stakeholders including UN Women M4C staff, local government and market management, market vendor associations and their members and other partners and stakeholders. This report will also be useful for development actors working in market spaces on issues of public safety.
