Public procurement refers to the process through which governments, cities and public entities acquire goods, services, and infrastructure from private sector suppliers. In the context of gender equality, public procurement policies can be used as a powerful tool to advance this goal. By incorporating gender considerations into procurement practices, governments can support women-owned businesses, promote fair employment practices, and ensure that goods and services are designed to meet the specific needs of all genders. The overall objective is to leverage public procurement as a means to create more inclusive, equitable, and diverse economies within cities, where gender equality is not only a policy goal but also a tangible reality.
