To counter the menace of sexual harassment and violence against women globally, technology can play an important role and can be deterrence against such acts.

To highlight the uses of technology in tackling gender-based harassment and violence in public spaces, an event will be hosted by ITPO and Exhibitions India Group, at One Mega Event 2018 at Pragati Maidan.

Titled as ‘Metropolitan strategies to achieve Safe Cities for women and girls: The NUA and SDG as a real opportunity’ the event comes on the backdrop of a research carried out by Metropolis Network and Women in Cities International (WICI).

The results of the research will be shared in order to map existing policies, programmes, and strategies being carried out by metropolitan governments and members of the association, around women’s safety in urban public spaces.

In Initiatives like New Urban Agenda (NUA) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 5 & 11 the safety of citizens has been prioritised.

Similarly the government is also putting ‘smart’ solutions to the problems of gender based violence by introducing Smart City Mission. The aim is to provide safety and security of citizens, particularly women, children and the elderly. The mission opens new windows of opportunity for the Government to spur its goal of restructuring the nation in a gender sensitive manner.

CMD India Trade Promotion Organisation (ITPO) L C Goyal said “Though practical urban planning practices such as improved lighting and design of streets and public spaces, and reliable, affordable and comfortable public transport facilities are a major achievement for ensuring safety and security of women and girls in our society, urban spaces will become truly safe when all citizens change their mindset and actively contribute towards elimination of all forms of violence against women and girls”.

“One Mega Event 2018 provides a platform that enables deeper communication and a more practical approach to resolving societal problems and seizing business opportunities for a number of players working towards making smart cities a reality,” said Chairman Exhibitions India Group, Prem Behl.
