Gender Dimensions Of Regional Coopertaion And Integration In South Asia: Gender, Trade And Green Growth (Volume I)
Abstract:
This study examines how trade liberalization impacts women, especially women engaged in the green industries, of four South Asian economies - Bangladesh, Bhutan, India and Nepal. The primary question being asked in this study is when South Asian economies increase trade with each other in the “green sectors”, how does it affect women, their participation in the labour force and their overall well-being. Historically, the South Asian economies have had the bulk of their trade with countries outside the region, with only a minor share of their total trade being with each other. Extra-regional trade accounts for 93.7 per cent of the region’s total exports and 96.1 per cent of its total imports, while intra-regional trade is less than 5 per cent of the total trade in South Asia. In fact, studies indicate that over 55 per cent of South Asia’s intra-regional trade potential remains untapped.
