Summary of a technical note on gender issues in urban mass transit systems.
The guide summarized here provides tools to help project teams working on mobility-optimizing urban transport systems (UTS) as they identify opportunities to improve gender equality and women’s empowerment and take steps to prevent exclusion from such systems based on gender. Relying on international best practices, the guide offers recommendations for the incorporation of such opportunities and measures into IDB-financed operations and presents questions and indicators for IDB project teams and member country counterparts to consider when designing and implementing projects.
