Integrating gender into World Bank financed transport programs - case study: Peru transport rehabilitation Project (English)

The study explores non motorized means of transport like bicycles and moto taxis, but also the state of the public transport units and organizations, as well as, institutions linked to transports and environment impact. In conclusion, during TRP's design, policies, programs and projects in transports investment did not included civil society participation, gendered users and operators as direct stakeholders, there was not either a coordinated institutional body, to address people's gender needs. However, the component for urban transport studies, provided the basis for a new Urban Transport Project, which will be implemented under the Trans Millennium Colombian Model for 2006 as part of the new local government commitment. The study has identified labor niches, traditionally of male domain, where women are scaling positions of management and decision making, however cultural stereotypes like machismo are still strong and affect them.
