WOMEN AND PUBLIC TRANSPORT IN EAST AFRICA| Expanding available data and knowledge base about women and public transport - Nairobi Report

Gender data
UN Women, Kenyatta University Women's Economic Empowerment Hub and Stockholm Environment Institute

The Nairobi Report on Women and Public Transport is the culmination of the efforts of UN Women, Kenyatta University’s Women's Economic Empowerment (KU-WEE) Hub, the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), and key public stakeholders in Kenya. These comprise the Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure Housing, Urban Development and Public Works, the National Transport and Road Safety Authority (NTSA), and the Nairobi Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (NaMATA). The Nairobi study is part of a series in East Africa and was aimed at identifying the general public transport needs of women in Kenya’s capital and identifying the obstacles faced by women in accessing and using public transport. The study also set out to identify interactions between women’s economic activities and public transport use and barriers and identify the incidents of gender-based violence (GBV) – particularly harassment and physical violence, and its interface with the use of public transport by women.
