CCG COP27 Side Event 15: 'Opportunities for African Cities to Meet Their Transport Planning'


Opportunities for African Cities to Meet Their Transport and Urban Planning Needs in a Greener, More Sustainable Way
Co-organised with @highvolumetransport886

African cities are the most rapidly growing and youngest cities in the world, and they’re changing fast. This offers immense opportunities as well as challenges for urban planning to meet the needs of the people and the economic growth, alongside meeting the urgent progress needed to address climate change. This session looks at the opportunities in urban and transport planning for African cities – considering trends such as transit-oriented development (TOD), where people live closer to jobs and services reducing time and environmental burden on transport and boosting economic growth.
