UN Women’s work in this area focuses on measures that enhance and secure the financial independence of women; promote their equal participation; and, provide socio-economic protections that would contribute to reduction in poverty and inequality, would enhance the quality of life of women and their families.

This paper draws together findings from an analysis of data from two surveys conducted in St Lucia—the St Lucia Survey of Living Conditions of 2005/2006 and the Quarterly Labour Force Surveys conducted in 2012. The paper is intended to inform UN Women’s support in St Lucia and the region more broadly.
