The Challenge 

Yaounde’s population is expected to grow up to 3.3M inhabitants by 2025, resulting in important challenges for urban services, urban transport being one of the first service to be impacted. The consequential urban sprawl will require the development of additional 650 hectares of land per year.
As of today, the major mobility challenges for Yaounde are the following: The urban sprawl and the recent development of informal mobility solutions (moto-taxi, mini-bus) to serve the suburban areas;
  • Control over urban sprawl;
  • Congestion management;
  • Development of a public transport network, relying on mass transit systems;
  • Development of public transport infrastructures;
  • Access to work, markets and educational services by public transport, walking or cycling;
  • Availability of affordable transport options for all citizens;
  • Air pollution, environment protection, public health and security;
  • Regulation and integration of informal public transport (paratransit);


Technical Assistance

  • Strategic objectives
    • Assessment of the implementation over the last decade of the existing urban mobility plan, developed in 2010;
    • Revision of the 2010 urban mobility plan to upgrade it to a SUMP (with a GHG emission reduction component), on the basis of an evaluation and accurate data on mobility;
    • Establishment of a vision for the next 10 years, based on an action plan detailing the short term (1-2 years), middle term (5 years) and long term (10 years) actions;
    • Establishment of a realistic financing plan, with description of the sources of revenue (local/national/international).
  • Operational objectives
    • Organization of workshops with local stakeholders
    • Assessment of the identified and ongoing projects:
