The first African Development Bank Transport Forum will take place on November 26-27, 2015 at the headquarters of the African Development Bank, in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, under the theme “Sustainable Transport for an Integrated Africa”.
The Forum is a key moment to share best practices and experiences, promote research and development, and stimulate continental business and professional networking.
It will bring together high-level government representatives, experts, development partners, international organizations, the private sector, academia, NGOs and other selected stakeholders.
How do we facilitate the movement of people and goods for increasing producer and consumer markets in Africa? How do we facilitate reliable, safe, sustainable and inclusive travel, both locally and internationally? These questions are at the heart of our two days of debate and discussion, which will be animated by more than 30 high-level speakers.
Through the prism of regional integration and national connectivity, the speakers will also highlight the new challenges faced by the continent, through the following five thematic topics:
- Innovative Financing
- Regional Integration and International Connectivity
- Urban Transport
- A Demand for Commitment to Road Safety
These are just a few of topics to be discussed in the course of five plenary panel discussions and nine parallel sessions, detailed here in the program.
