Case studies: Transport [Practical Guide to Mainstreaming Gender in Water Projects].
These 2 case studies that have been collected under the heading 'Transport' form part of a project on mainstreaming gender in water projects to bring issues of social exclusion in the practical development of infrastructure in low-income countries into the core of project planning and design. They have been kept short and edited slightly to bring out the engineering issues. Topics covered are: the impact of canal construction on women's livelihoods in Colombia; and women's rural travel and transport issues in Tanzania.
