Policies for Sustainable Accessibility and Mobility in Urban Areas of Nigeria
Within the framework of the urban transport and mobility pillar, the African Transport Policy Program (SSATP) launched an activity to support eight pilot countries (Ivory Coast, Ethiopia, Guinea, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Senegal) in the development of policies to improve accessibility and mobility in urban areas of Africa. Six thematic areas were considered as priorities:
Strengthening the institutional framework for urban transport management
Creating funding sources dedicated to the management of urban transport
Promoting the effective participation of civil society in urban transport management
Improving multi-modal planning and operation of city centers
Improving the performance of public transport (in particular the reform of paratransit services)
Organizing and implementing Federal Government assistance for the management of urban transport in secondary cities.
