UNIFEM’s Progress of the World’s Women 2005: Women, Work & Poverty

UNIFEM (now called UN Women) asked WIEGO to write the 2005 issue of Progress of the World’s Women – UNIFEM’s biennial flagship publication– on the topic of “Women, Work, and Poverty.” Officially launched at the United Nations on September 16, 2005 to coincide with the Millennium Development Summit, the publication focuses on employment, especially informal employment, as a key pathway to reducing poverty and gender inequality.

Informal Economy Monitoring Study (IEMS) Publications

These findings are based on research conducted in 2012 as part of the Informal Economy Monitoring Study (IEMS), a project under Inclusive Cities and led by WIEGO.

Conducted in 10 cities in Africa, Asia and Latin America, the study examines how informal livelihoods are changing, how informal workers respond, and what institutions help or hinder their lives.

WIEGO Working Paper Series

The WIEGO Working Paper Series is part of our  Publication Series. Our working papers feature research that makes either an empirical or theoretical contribution to existing knowledge about the informal economy. Particular attention is paid to policy-relevant research. This series includes statistical profiles of informal employment and critical analysis of data collection and classification methods. Methodological issues and innovations, as well as suggestions for future research, are considered.
