Successful Second Annual

Women and Transportation African Conference - 2019

  • Capital Hotel & Horn of Africa Regional Centre :: Addis Ababa, ETHIOPIA
  • Organized by Flone Initiative and the World Resource Institute Africa

Creating Safe, Sustainable and Accessible Transport in Africa

About the Conference

The conference seeks to bridge the gap between research and policy initiatives pertaining to urban planning, public safety and gender-based violence issues and the real-world challenges facing women currently working in the transportation sector.

Employability

Recruitment, retention and promotion of women in the transportation industry

Accessibility

Gender differences in travel behavior, attitudes and preferences as well as safety consideration and accessible transport

Environment

Climate change and low-carbon transport solutions

Themes for the Conference

Public transportation is notoriously unsafe for women, children, people living with disabilities and other vulnerable groups. Together, we must increase the visibility of women in the male dominated field of public transportation to reflect a more equitable and sustainable public transport system for everyone!

The Conference, will provide a platform for practitioners, researchers, policy makers and other key stakeholders to engage in skill-building, idea-sharing and experiential learning that will inspire new solutions to transport challenges faced by women and other vulnerable road users.
