Focus on walking in Africa

On the continent with some of the highest mode shares of walking – we are pleased to be working with a number of partners to highlight the importance of walking, capture emerging good practise and build a platform of resources and support.

Closing this week is our COVID-19 survey – seeking to capture on the ground responses to the pandemic as well as any changing attitudes to walking and cycling.  Initial results will be available late August as we work with UN Environment to build a program of support and capacity building.  If you would like to contribute to this work please be in touch directly.

We are also working on collecting and understanding approaches to walking from national policies to local initiatives and to building a bigger piece about valuing walking within African cities and transport systems.  We welcome your inputs to this work if you are working in this field.
