Abstract

Transport poverty and the associated, multiple levels of deprivation experienced by women is a wicked problem. Gender transport poverty in Low Middle Income Countries is an issue of longstanding concern but is one in which little headway seems to be made. The WEMOBILE project has used (auto) ethnographic and empathic design approaches to study gender transport poverty in Malaysia and Pakistan. The paper explores the insights provided from employing a systemic design lens to comprehend the structural barriers, systemic architecture of the problem, interconnections and linkages with other elements and factors, and the gaps which hinder the effectiveness of existing solutions, and secondly how such an approach may be used to (re)present issues around gender transport poverty in ways which can lead to policy and operational changes.
