AIP Foundation participated in a stakeholder workshop for a new project co-organized by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), AIESEC International, and SafetiPin that focuses on improving access and mobility for pedestrians along the upcoming Hanoi Metro Line. A key component of the pilot will be the use of Safetipin, an innovative online map-based smart phone application that creates a platform to collect data about safe and inclusive public spaces. The app then maps this data as a method for providing reliable data to ADB, governments, urban and transport planners, and other stakeholders to help them in designing and planning safer and more inclusive urban public spaces for citizens, particularly women and girls.
Fifteen stakeholders attended the meeting, including representatives from UNICEF, UNESCO, UN Vietnam, AIESEC Viet Nam, Plan International, Centre for Gender, Family and Environment in Development (CGEFD), and the Hanoi Women’s Union. While there, they received training on use of the app and learned more about the scope of the project.
