Event details

This INTALInC webinar will explore promising approaches aimed at overcoming exclusion in East African urban transport planning, showcasing key methodological innovations.

Inclusion means empowering all people to participate in and benefit from transport. It encompasses transport policies that promote equality and non-discrimination by improving access and mobility of all people, including the poor and disadvantaged, to essential services such as education and health. It also embraces action to remove barriers against those who are often excluded from the transport planning process, such as women, children, persons with disabilities, youth and minorities, and to ensure that the voice of all can be heard.

This seminar will explore promising approaches aimed at overcoming exclusion in East African urban transport planning showcasing key methodological innovations. The seminar will be led by Steve Cinderby (SEI York), with Constant Cap as discussant, and will present three case studies:

  • Accessibility and mobility interventions in informal settlements (Slum Dwellers International)
  • Creative methods to widen transport planning inclusion in Nairobi and Kampala (Cassilde Muhoza and Romanus Opiyo, SEI Africa)
  • On-street engagement in Lusaka and Kampala (Amanda Ngabirano, Makere University and Daniel Mwamba, Zambia Road Safety Trust).

Presentations will discuss the benefits of widening inclusion on urban transport systems robustness and resilience outcomes.
