Gender sensitive reform in Kerala

This study aims to provide suggestions to the State Transport Department towards making transportation systems inclusive and safer. Qualitative and quantitative data to understand issues and priorities of women towards safer transportation systems were collected through various tools. Issues were identified through the assessment of initiatives taken by the State Government, stakeholders’ consultation, focus group discussions (FGDs) with different women groups, perception surveys and transport infrastructure assessment. Around 1,600 women were consulted in the cities of Kochi, Kozhikode and Trivandrum through FGDs and surveys.
