Economic modelling of gender issues in road transport


Department of Civil Engineering

About the Project

The inclusion of gender issues in road transport has been long recognised. Therefore it appears necessary that effective road transport policies should address gender issues sufficiently. To achieve this it is necessary to substantiate such policies with models capable of capturing the effects of gender issues on transport and economic growth satisfactorily. To this end this research will seek
- to investigate the inclusion of gender issues in road policies worldwide through a systematic literature review
- to examine how gender issues affect the economic and transport growth of a region
- to find factors describing gender issues and their value
- to develop an economic model that can describe the involvement of gender issues in the transport related economic growth
- to test the models and develop appropriate recommendations with the view to improving the inclusion of gender issues in road policies.

The work will focus on developing countries.
