SUTP Module 7a – Approaches for Gender Responsive Urban Mobility: Gender and Urban Transport – Smart and Affordable
This module addresses how gender should be addressed in transport policy and planning. Unsuccessful, inefficient and unsustainable transport can result from a lack of consideration of gender issues. Moreover, transport is often seen as gender neutral – a road or bus system is expected to affect everyone equally. However, urban transport systems are dynamic and are influenced by society, and differences within society must be taken into account.
