The second in series of eight CIVITAS WIKI Policy Analyses is now available online.
With its policy documents WIKI wants to inform people in the cities on a number of topics that currently play an important role in urban mobility.
Infographics illustrating the main findings of the analysis in the field of gender equality and mobility are also available both, as a part of the specific Policy Analysis document, and as a separate file.
The second Policy Analysis focuses on the topic of gender-sensitive mobility planning. In both, the International body of literature and transport planning, the gender dimension in mobility patterns and sustainability has received relatively little attention so far, even though, together with age and income, gender is considered a significant factor in accounting for differences in mobility behavior, with women recognized as being more likely to adopt sustainable travel behaviours than men.
A growing debate on this topic is ongoing at EU level and it has been re-launched within the CIVITAS Integrated Planning Thematic Group. Collaborative Interaction was set up on the CIVITAS Interactive Platform (http://www.civitas.eu/thematic-cooperation) and in the CIVITAS Urban Mobility LinkedIn Group, to collect further resources, links to other projects, practical city experiences and opinions and comments on the topic.
