11:30 - 13:00 Plenary 2: Transport for Green and Inclusive Growth
Objective of Session
The size of the transport infrastructure and systems in Africa has been growing steadily over the past few decades, but has this growth been following a “green and inclusive” path? This session will look at the evolving social and environmental challenges and how countries, international institutions and think tanks are gearing up to face these challenges, ensuring that Africa maximize its economic and social gains by adopting more green and inclusive transport systems. How to promote that approach, starting up from strategic level planning and down to system designs?
