Mexico - Reducing Violence Against Women through Interventions in Public Transport (English)

Public transport is often the only way for girls and women to get to work, school, and healthcare services in developing countries. However, safety can be a major concern. Experience from several parts of the world suggests the most effective way to tackle violence against women and girls (VAWG) in public transport, including sexual harassment and violence, is through a holistic approach using technology, effective response protocols, and awareness-raising. The World Bank - in line with sustainable development goal 5 on gender equality and G20 quality infrastructure investment (QII) principles - is looking to enhance and implement these solutions across its transport projects in Latin American cities with this 2016 pilot strategy in Mexico City leading the way.
