3/ When implementing gender-sensitive transport systems, different aspects need to be considered. These include the economic situation of women, differences in travel patterns, the higher reliance of women on public transport and higher safety and security concerns.
4/ What actions are recommended to establish gender-sensitive transport planning?
-Dev. of Gender Action Plan (GAP)
-Definition of targets (prioritization of areas and specific activities)
-Review of inst. and legal framework
-Involvement of stakeholders
