Gender Equality and the Role of Women in Decarbonising Transport: Report launch and interactive webinar
15:00 - 16:30 CEST
Join the International Transport Forum (ITF) and FIA Foundation for a joint webinar launching the new report "Gender Equality and the Role of Women in Decarbonising Transport."
What are the linkages between gender equality, transport and climate change?
This webinar will explore how mainstreaming gender considerations into all decarbonising transport policy-making decisions can help us to deliver on climate action goals. Based on a survey of ITF’s member countries, this study outlines best practices, lessons learned and challenges to help other countries, cities, and companies to align their gender equality and transport decarbonisation goals.
By raising awareness of the gender, transport and climate change nexus among governments, international organisations, businesses and researchers this webinar is a timely conversation starter ahead of COP27 in Egypt later this year.
