Discover Sustainable Urban Transport Workshop

November 28, 2017 - November 30, 2017
Windhoek, Namibia

Cities in southern Africa are facing considerable challenges in meeting the mobility demands of their citizens. Often, municipal urban transport systems are not meeting the requirements in terms of capacity, quality and reliability. As public transport fails to be attractive, people are switching to private cars or are using informal services - resulting in more accidents, air pollution and increasing costs for private and public households.

This regional workshop in Windhoek, Namibia, will bring together stakeholders from various cities in southern Africa to share their knowledge and experience in sustainable transport, bus reform and improvement, and sustainable mobility planning. International experts will help improve concepts, develop new ideas and support joint approaches. Work on specific case studies and an exciting field trip will complement the programme.
