This report addresses the lack of safety that women and girls face in public spaces and presents the findings of a review of the policies and programmes that metropolitan governments have established to proactively respond to these concerns. It maps policies, strategies and instruments that foster safer public spaces. 

It references two crucial Sustainable Development Goals: achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls; and make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
