About the Webinar

The “Access for All: Access and Gender” paper, co-authored by ITDP and WEDO, distills how transportation systems have failed to account for diverse mobility patterns and needs, and provides key recommendations to promote gender-responsive actions. During this webinar, we will discuss how transit-oriented development (TOD) provides integrated urban places that bring together people, activities, services and more, but it does not inherently lead to social inclusion and equality. Our session will review gender aspects of sustainable mobility and specifically, how the effects of climate change on cities and transportation systems disproportionately affect women.
