This Technical Guidance Note (TGN) is part of a series of documents on integrating gender equality into the sector operations of Caribbean Development Bank (CDB). The Notes identify key issues which lead to, and reinforce gender inequality, and propose possible solutions for addressing them.
This specific TGN Summary focuses on the Transport sector. Safe and accessible transportation is a significant aspect of Caribbean development. Its importance is emphasised under Target 11.2 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals: to “provide access to safe, affordable, accessible and sustainable transport systems for all, improving road safety, notably by expanding public transport, with special attention to the needs of those in vulnerable situations, women, children, persons with disabilities and older persons.”
The expectation is that the TGN will assist the relevant field officers, technical specialists and decision- makers in effectively infusing gender equality into the Region’s transportation sector.
