These Guidelines are based on findings of a UK aid funded Research for Community Access Partnership (ReCAP) cluster of gender mainstreaming projects as well as the author’s experience. The ReCAP initiative comprised of 7 projects that were implemented in AfCAP (Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, and Uganda) and AsCAP (Nepal) partner countries. The overall objective of the Guidelines is to provide a step-by-step guidance, as appropriate, on how to mainstream gender in the following areas: transport policy & planning, sector institutions, the infrastructure improvement cycle and the provision of transport services. The Guidelines will be beneficial to transport ministries, roads authorities, road funds, local government works departments, traffic and road safety agencies, and transport regulators and operators.
