Equity is key to achieving sustainable development and inclusive transport is one of the major challenges for decision makers. This session will not only highlight the urgency of actions but also present the value added of inclusive planning and implementation through a variety of approaches including recognising the needs of women and children
Key Messages from Event :
- There are many groups to consider in planning mobility solutions including women, children,the poor and the less able.
- Many approaches should be considered but solutions which have worked include for example, cross subsidisation of public transport so that it can be accessed by vulnerable groups
- Safety and security are key, on the roads and in public transport where children and women are vulnerable to road accidents and harassment respectively.
