The Impact of Covid – 19 on Sustainable Transport and Mobility: Lessons Learnt so Far

June 10, 2020 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am SAST

The International Road Federation (IRF) in Geneva and the South African Transport Conference (SATC) Board are pleased to announce a joint webinar to be held on June 10th, 2020 from 10.00 to 11.30 am (SAST).

The Southern African Transport Conference (SATC) is the longest running transport conference in the region. Beside the presentation of research and technology transfer papers, capacity building in the form of courses has always been one of its key focus. The SATC has always served as a forum to debate current transport related issues. The current pandemic has forced the organisers to postpone the conference to 2021 but has not managed to silent the willingness to share expertise and knowledge. Hence SATC Board and IRF have decided to organise a series of webinars to address key topics that were central to the conference but to do so in the light of the current situation.

While reviewing current international scenario, this first webinar will focus on the impacts that COVID-19 has had and is having on Sustainable Transport and Mobility in Africa and in general in low and middle income countries. The situation of these countries largely differs in many ways from that of countries and cities in Europe, the USA or Australia. There’s an urgent need to discuss and better understand needs in order to tailor adequate solutions.
