Abstract: It is the purpose of this chapter to advance the discourse between gender analysis and transport, specifically within the urban development context, with a view to promoting an understanding of the strategic role of transport, access and mobility in addressing strategic human (including gendered) development issues. The objective is to explore the use of practical frameworks and tools that can be used by transport and urban analysts in starting to examine the gender aspects of their work. The gender analysis framework explored here is based on Caroline Moser’s well-known work in the gender and development field, but is extended for application specifically in the transport field. The framework’s application is illustrated briefly with examples from recent research undertaken by the authors in South Africa. The chapter first provides a brief overview of previous work on gender, transport, and development, in order to place the present discussion in a larger context. Then the proposed framework is discussed with its examples, highlighting methodological issues that are relevant to the discussion.
