In order to do justice to current urbanisation processes in terms of sustainable urban development, the inclusion of gender aspects is unavoidable. In this context, findings on behaviours and responsibilities, such as the unequally distributed care work between the sexes, different income distributions, but also gender-specific consumption and nutrition practices are elementary.

In the project, gender aspects for environmentally relevant urban research are worked out by means of comprehensive, systematic literature research and evaluation. The analysis is structured along the needs of mobility, nutrition, housing, clothing, community consumption and digitisation. Subsequently, gender analyses of programmes and measures related to urban development (e.g. Habitat III, New Urban Agenda, SDGs) will be carried out. The project objective is the development of research recommendations with special consideration of gender aspects in order to provide impulses for more target-group-specific urban environmental protection.

Dialogues on the Waste Avoidance Program II

The continuous large amounts of waste produced are valuable resources. Waste avoidance is therefore of great importance. The first federal and state waste avoidance program responds to this. However, the approaches often lack practical relevance, which is why a stronger concretization and binding nature of waste avoidance is necessary.
