Summary of urban transport study published
3 November 2016
A summary has been published of a major study into urban transport development in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Commissioned by the Infrastructure Consortium for Africa (ICA), the diagnostic study identifies opportunities for investment to improve sustainable urban transport and mobility in five African cities – Accra, Addis Ababa, Dakar, Dar es Salaam and Lagos.
Assessing a number of the fastest-growing cities in Africa, the Diagnostic Study and Project Development/Investment Pipeline for Urban Transport in Sub-Saharan Africa seeks opportunities to support and assist cities in overcoming urban mobility challenges. It provides an understanding of the urban transport development landscape in the five cities and seeks to identify potential opportunities for investment and support in improving sustainable transport and accessibility.
The findings of the study were shared at a one-day workshop held at the African Development Bank in September 2016, and will be considered further at the ICA’s 2016 Annual Meeting on 21 & 22 November 2016.
