Role of gender equality in decarbonising transport

Nov 14, 2022 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM


Transport is not gender neutral, and nor are the causes and impacts of climate change. To create an inclusive and sustainable transport system, its gender dimensions need to be understood and addressed. This event will highlight the linkages between gender equality, transport and climate change, and examine the role of women in decarbonising transport. Why is adopting a gender-based analysis necessary when considering decarbonising transport policies? How can we strengthen awareness of the gender, transport and climate change policy nexus? What role do governments play? Speakers from transport ministers, international organisations, foundations and industry will share their commitments and goals in achieving gender equality through transport and climate measures. In this regard, the event will highlight guiding principles to help policymakers incorporate gender equality into their decarbonising transport goals, as highlighted in the ITF-FIA Foundation’s recent report on Gender equality and the role of women in decarbonising transport.
