Transport Innovation for Sustainable Development: A Gender Perspective
type of publication
This third edition of the ITF Compendium on Women in Transport showcases the role of innovation in promoting gender equality in the sector. ITF stakeholder contributions, brought together here, highlight that innovation in transport – whether it implies new technologies, new business models or social innovation – should be designed to consider the needs of, and optimise access to opportunities for, all travellers. The authors present related challenges and propose solutions for transport innovations to serve women and girls, solutions that may ultimately result in more inclusive and sustainable transport. Examples are from different modes of transport, including aviation, road and rail, and it addresses related opportunities and challenges on the local, regional and global levels.
