Service line: Thriving Economies

Project: Training to the European Investment Bank on Gender Considerations in Transport Investments

Client: EIB

Delivered: April 2021 (Ongoing)

Working as part of the Social Development Direct-led team, UrbanEmerge is leading one of six resource packs, which focus on infrastructure, gender and women’s economic empowerment. Leading on the Transport Resource Pack, we are developing guidance for the EIB on how they can incorporate greater focus on gender in their urban transport, road and rail investments in LMICs. This includes a range of entry points from participatory approaches to planning to more transformational change such as more equal employment opportunities. This is followed by a longer-term Helpdesk, to provide EIB teams with practical guidance on gender and transport when needed.
