"For me the TUMI workshop was [a place where] foundation stories were laid to African cities."
Grant Sichali, Director of Engineering Services, Blantyre City, Council, Malawi
The about 30 transport planners from five southern African countries discussed very engaged ways to implement Sustainable Urban Transport in the region. The aim of the workshop was to make new perspectives visible and to exchange views, experiences, challenges as well as solutions of fellow transport planners. Energized and enriched by the experts’ inputs, the transport planners from cities such as Lusaka, Mzuzu, Lilongwe or Windhoek expressed their will to keep the momentum for ongoing engagement in the field.
