Dates: March, 2021
Survey Location: Doddanekundi (Ward 81, 82 and 85)
Number of citizens surveyed: 47 (10 children, 10 women, 9 elderly, 8 working in the area and 10 people from lower socio-economic strata
Focus group discussions were conducted to get deeper insights and to encourage participatory and inclusive approach in planning, the second stage of data collection process included FGDs. This is to ensure that the voices of the underprivileged, marginalised, and the neglected segments of the society are also given a platform to deliberate on the challenges and issues relating to mobility in their neighbourhood.
Five Target groups- women; senior citizens; men; school going children; and people belonging to lower socio-economic strata who stay within the study area - were chosen to conduct a more focused discussion on the factors that affect their travel behaviour. The insights were useful in coming up with proposals for the neighbourhood.
