Gender equality and mobility: mind the gap!
CIVITAS Policy Note
This CIVITAS policy note focuses on the topic of gender-sensitive mobility planning. “Achieving the target of sustainability in urban mobility also means considering the needs of different users and thereby offering equal levels of accessibility to transport to all different groups. The need to adopt a gender-sensitive perspective is emerging as a challenging and impending task for urban mobility policy makers and planners. In this sense, to be effective, urban mobility policy action needs to be more gender-sensitive”.
