The ASTF ‘Conversation Series [Concept Note]

The ASTF ‘Conversation Series’ seeks to provide a discussion platform conducive to understanding and advancing the current narrative around transport and linked issues such as poverty eradication, environmental safeguarding, equitable access for all and the full transformative potential of sustainable transport for people, places, our environment and our economy.

ASTF would like to invite you to participate in this exciting new initiative!


Picture This: My Transport Reality

What is the urban transport situation in your country? Would you like to share this reality with others? The ASTF is starting a campaign to gather diverse images of the transport reality from all across Africa. Please send your transport pictures – both good and bad – to Hilary Murphy at Hilary.murphy@unep.org. We will display them on our website.

Sustainable Transport Week, October 27-31, 2014 at the UN, Nairobi

The Africa Sustainable Transport Forum will provide a platform for high-level attention and policy dialogue on access to environmentally sustainable transport in Africa. The Forum is a partnership between UNEP, the World Bank, and UN-Habitat.

The goal of the Forum is to “integrate sustainable transport into the region’s development and planning processes and increase the amount of funding going to sustainable transport programs in Africa – to improve access to transport, reduce air pollution and climate emissions, and improve road safety and health.”
