Uddheshya: Mainstreaming Gender from Ideas to Action
Empowerment of women is a central theme of India’s G20 Presidency, with the aim of reducing the gender gap in workforce participation by 25% by 2025 and bringing more than 100 million women into the labor force. Uddheshya will bring together gender experts, transport agencies, research organizations, civil society groups and other stakeholders to deliberate on policy frameworks for gender-inclusive mobility and implementation pathways for achieving equitable access to mobility and opportunity for all.
The one-day conference is being organized by the World Resources Institute India (WRI India), under the aegis of the Forum for Decarbonizing Transport, a NITI Aayog-led platform created as part of the NDC Transport Initiative for Asia (NDC-TIA) for enabling more ambitious and inclusive transport decarbonization action.
The session will look at hosting gender experts, transport agencies, research organizations, civil society groups and other stakeholders. Insights from the conference will highlight the opportunities for implementing gender-inclusive mobility and charting pathways towards achieving equitable and inclusive transport systems for all.
