A new publication covering a Sustainability Orientated Gender Impact Assessment (GIA) - elaborated with the context of international Cooperation, City and Transport has been issued by KfW Entwicklungsbank. The study, conducted by Meike Spitzner, Frank Weiler, Rahma Andi and Jeff Turner in Jakarta, exposes gender problems that are created or reproduced because of urban transport policies and determines ways of promoting positive gender impacts through urban transport projects.
This study, commissioned by the European Parliament, has been conducted as a cooperation between the University of East London and the Wuppertal Institute/Germany. It focuses on women as users/consumers as well as workers in the transport sector. It shows how mobility patterns of women and men differ and is giving important impulses for sustainable and gender-just transport and mobility policies.
