Policies for Sustainable Accessibility and Mobility in Cities of Kenya
The Urban Transport and Mobility (UTM) pillar of the Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) launched a project to support eight pilot countries (Côte d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Guinea, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Senegal) in the development of policies to improve accessibility and mobility in urban areas. Six thematic areas were considered as priorities: (i) strengthening institutional frameworks, (ii) creating dedicated sources of funding, (iiI) promoting the effective participation of civil society, (iv) improving multi-modal planning and operation, (v) increasing the performance of public transport (in particular through the reform of paratransit services), and (vi) providing support to secondary cities. This report presents the findings, analysis, and recommendations developed through this project for Kenya.
This work was conducted in close partnership with the Ministry of Transport, Infrastructure, Housing and Urban Development (MoTIHUD). An assessment of the six priority areas presented above was carried out to identify the most relevant recommendations to be proposed for Kenyan cities. These recommendations were discussed at length at the Urban Mobility Forum organized under the auspices of MOTIHUD and bringing together a vast array of stakeholders in May 2018.
