The side event, scheduled during the Aid for Trade Global Review, will provide the opportunity for UNCTAD to present the Trade and Gender Toolbox. The toolbox helps answering the question, "What would happen to women if a given trade policy were implemented?". This innovative instrument, sponsored by the Government of Sweden, contributes to ensure that trade plays its role as a tool for inclusive development and for the economic empowerment of women.

H.E. Ann Linde, Minister for EU Affairs and Trade, Sweden
Dr. Mukhisa Kituyi, Secretary-General, UNCTAD
Dr. Maria Masood, Economist, Trade, Gender and Development Programme, UNCTAD

Ms. Simonetta Zarrilli, Chief, Trade, Gender and Development Programme, UNCTAD

The launching of the Trade and Gender Toolbox will be followed by a reception.
