Gender Equity and Mainstreaming Effective gender mainstreaming
Description The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the preparation and initial implementation of the Armenia Transport and Trade Facilitation Strategy (TTFS), 2020 2040, which will focus on developing (i) transport master plan, (ii) a trade facilitation plan, (iii) a road safety plan and program, and (iv) modal action plans. A well-prepared TTFS will be key to meeting the country's economic goals and will improve international cooperation and regional integration and can serve as input to the Government of Armenia's (GoA) effort to update the Armenia Development Strategy.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy In 2008, the government developed the Armenia: Transport Sector Development Strategy, providing guidance for the transport sector up to 2020. As 2020 approaches, a new strategy the proposed TTFS is needed to (i) apply lessons learned from the previous strategy; (ii) broaden the scope of transport planning to involve the private sector; (iii) expand on the previous strategy to incorporate trade facilitation and traffic safety; and (iv) mainstream gender, environmental, social, and climate change aspects.
