About the #DIVAWProject: 
Continuous and widespread Violence Against Women (VAW) in urban India highlight the challenge of delivering SDGs 5 and 11 - gender equality and safe, sustainable, inclusive cities. In particular, women in low-income urban neighbourhoods face increased sexual and physical assaults during access to and use of connected infrastructures (eg. water, toilets, transport, walkways), which also highlight the challenge of delivering SDG 6 โ€“ clean water and sanitation to all. Combined with this is an acute information and skills gap in technology use amongst these women that impedes their knowledgeable and empowered engagement with social and material assemblages of urban infrastructures. This project will take a rights-based approach to the challenge: How to address VAW by improving womenโ€™s knowledge of and safe access to urban infrastructure in the Indian city. The project will use innovations in digital technology and open source mapping, co-produced with societal partners, to collect big data on infrastructural blindspots, and deep data on VAW, through participatory mapping of infrastructure use.

This project is funded by the British Academyโ€™s Cities and Infrastructure Programme.
