The purpose of this Resource Guide is to provide easy access to materials on Gender and Transport. It is hoped that the dissemination of these materials will help to sustain efforts at gender mainstreaming in the transport sector and ultimately enhance the impact of transport sector investments.
The materials included in the Resource Guide provide practitioners in the transport sector with guidance and background materials directed at answering the questions of "Why?" and "How to?" support gender mainstreaming in the sector.
Provides checklists, entry points, and tools for mainstreaming gender in transport projects and policies.
Brings together case studies, best practices, training manuals, tools and reports on gender and transport from the Gender and Rural Transport Initiative (GRTI), and other initiatives of the World Bank and allied agencies.
Uses a gender lens to analyze transport programs ranging from national infrastructure policies and plans to community driven development projects.
Presents examples of engendering the full range of transport network interventions ranging from intermediate means of transport (IMT) such as bicycles, donkeys and carts to formal transport sub-sectors such as roads, buses and boats.
Provides slide presentations that can be adapted for gender and transport training, gender sensitization, and other events.
