Bridging the gender data divide in African cities

Urbanisation in Africa is rapidly increasing. Mobility needs are mainly catered for by poorly regulated informal transport services. While these services are essential especially for the urban poor, there is an urgent need to collect and analyze data on all transport users to understand their needs and barriers to using public transport and moving around safely in public spaces. The data gap is particularly severe in the analysis of women’s mobility. The Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI) is working on closing the gender data gap in urban mobility in selected pilot cities in Africa.
