More than a billion people walk or cycle in Africa every day to reach work, their homes, school and other essential services.
This report, for the first time, uses existing data sources interpreted through a walking and cycling lens, to highlight where policy, infrastructure and budgets are needed urgently to better retain, protect and enable people to walk and cycle in the African continent.
It baselines conditions in all 54 African countries and highlights inspiring best practices. Recommendations are set out for governments and other stakeholders to ensure transport decisions made today will deliver safer, more sustainable and resilient networks in the future.
Walk21 is very grateful to the United Nations Environment Programme and the United Nations Human Settlements Programme for their support in making this innovative report possible.DOWNLOAD THE REPORT
