Moving Towards Green & Inclusive Mobility in Africa


Africa is experiencing an unprecedented motorization rate spurred by high rates of urbanization and economic growth. The demands on city space and services often outpace the ability of planners to respond, resulting in challenging outcomes for infrastructure development and mobility services. In many African cities, informal and unregulated transport are the most common mode of transportation. Despite the necessity of these services, Informal transport presents a challenge to local authorities and transport operators to regulate (environment, safety, labor etc. ) and integrate these services into multi-modal mass transit networks.  

This session focuses on innovative solutions that African cities are employing to respond and adapt to these pressures and will introduce MoVe Yaoundé, a new Team Europe approach, to transform Yaoundé towards a sustainable and inclusive transport future.
