Gender Impact Assessment, Warburton Mountain Bike Destination Project

Yarra Ranges Council is committed to working towards a Yarra Ranges where everyone has equitable access to resources, power and opportunities. This commitment is documented in the current Council Plan 2022-25.
The Gender Equality Act 2020 requires local governments to conduct Gender Impact Assessments on all policies, programs and services which directly and significantly impact the public.
Xyst in partnership with Emerge completed the study.

Project Benefit

The Gender Impact Assessment process aims to identify any barriers to people of different genders accessing and participating in mountain biking, and to identify ways to make the WMBD more inclusive for everyone (refer definition of everyone below).
