ITF Gender Analysis Toolkit for Transport offers an easy-to-use method for incorporating a gender-inclusive perspective into transport projects, plans and policies and was informed by three underlying questions: How are travel behaviours and patterns of women and men affected by their social roles and the level of accessibility of transport services? How will transport policies, programmes and projects affect women and men differently? How will greater gender equality in the transport workforce enhance transport infrastructure, systems and modes to benefit women and other users? The tool was developed for governments, international organisations, contractors and all those who design, manage, implement or evaluate transport projects and provides three uncomplicated tools for carrying out their own gender analyses: A gender check-list, gender-relevant indicators and a questionnaire to collect data on gender in transport. The tool provides additional information on why a gender analysis is important and showcases some gender analyses best practices.

Tool Outcome

With the gender check-list, tool users can evaluate whether a project or policy reflects the perspectives of different genders. Additionally, the checklist can serve as a benchmark for progress. Using the list of gender indicators, tool users can measure how gender-balanced a transport policy or project is. The questionnaire can be used as a template for developing surveys to identify which existing transport-gender-related data and which policies are already in place as a first step towards data collection and analysis to develop gender-sensitive transport policies.
