Gender and Urban Transport
Many people recognize transport as gender neutral – though in fact, it´s not! Gender is a transversal dimension of social life and impacts travel behaviour, patterns, needs and accesses. Women and men have different pre-conditions, needs and restrictions for using transport. This has to be taken into consideration for all transport planning and projects to adequately meet the demand and to assure that transport is efficient and sustainable.
This webinar explores how gender issues pursue sustainable urban mobility in very practical terms. Participants learn about gender considerations in transport planning, design and operation and will hear about safety and security aspects in transportation.
