Mapping out Africa’s Response to COVID-19 impacts on Transport & Mobility: Report Findings
May 27, 2021 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm CEST
The International Road Federation (IRF) and the Global Alliance of NGOs for Road Safety (Global Alliance) have undertaken a review of the impact of the COVID-19 response on transport and mobility in seven countries in Africa: Cameroon, Kenya, Morocco, Mozambique, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda. Key informant interviews and focus group discussions took place on the ground which heavily contributed to the review.
Specifically, this research project aims to fill the gap between COVID-19 policy design, implementation and impact by gathering data on the COVID-19 related restrictions that were implemented in these countries at the institutional level, and how these impacted transport and mobility of people and goods on the ground.
This webinar will highlight the final evidence-based suggestions coming out of this project that policy- and decision makers, as well as all transport stakeholders, in Africa should consider when defining responses to potential future waves of COVID-19 or other pandemics and recovery measures. The project approach and preliminary findings were discussed during a previous webinar on 29th March 2021, more information on which can be found here.
The webinar will be held on Thursday 27th March 2021 at 11:00 – 12:30 CEST.
The research is funded by the the COVID-19 Response & Recovery Transport Research Fund which was established by the Research for Community Access Partnership (ReCAP) and the High Volume Transport Applied Research Programme (HVT) as part of the UK Department for International Development’s (DFID now FCDO) response to COVID-19.
