New Book Out on Non-Motorised Transport in Urban Planning

Title: Non-Motorized Transport Integration Into Urban Transport Planning in Africa

Transport is acknowledged as one of the critical services which will determine whether a nation achieves the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular Goal 11 on resilient safe and sustainable cities.

This book discusses how most African cities have a large population of low income households who largely depend on non-motorized travel (NMT), in particular walking to get around. The book brings together an analysis of the cities of Cape Town, Dar es Salaam and Nairobi's NMT behavior, planning and institutional frameworks that provide guidelines for non-motorized infrastructure, and the safety and security of pedestrians and cyclists. The book focuses on conventional transport network analysis and motor-vehicle dominated infrastructure decision-making and delivery in urban Africa

The book is edited by Winnie V. Mitullah, Marianne Vanderschuren, and  Meleckidzedeck Khayesi.
