Africa is the most rapidly urbanising region in the planet, over 56% of its citizens currently live in the cities and by 2050 a further 16% rise is projected. The social, economic and environmental implications of this will be enormous. Of growing concern is the challenge of urban mobility. Urban air and noise pollution, traffic gridlock and crippling congestion is already hampering the movement of people and goods, causing economic, environmental and health concerns.
With the demand for high capacity transit intensifying, national and regional governments have begun formulating and implementing urban rail and bus transit master-plans and initiatives. As a consequence, investments driven by urban transport developments are set to increase thus creating scope for exceptional growth in the related projects.
Urban Mobility Africa brings together senior government officials, transport authorities, city planners and industry experts to explore the business opportunities in Africa’s fast growing public transport sector. This high-level conference will provide a platform for stakeholder dialogue and quality networking, with the aim being the facilitation of strategic partnerships that can develop and deploy urban public transport systems and services in Africa.
