You are cordially invited to “Walk-Stroll-Cycle-Ability: Designing a Street Network for All” with Clayton Lane, CEO of the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) on Tuesday, July 19th, 2016 at 4:00 pm -5:00 p.m. at Nairobi Garage, Westlands. Clayton Lane will be joined by panelists from Kenya Alliance of Residents’ Associations and UNHabitat among others.
The vast majority of commuters in Nairobi travel by foot, cycle, and public transport every day. Yet we continue to allocate the right to road space to private vehicles, leaving other users in the lurch. What can we do to ensure mobility and accessibility for all? Some of the most important changes do not require a huge investment—but they will require a change in our priorities. As different organisations and individuals with a common goal of enhancing mobility, what joint ventures could we take to realise results?
Clayton Lane has over two decades of experience in sustainable transport having served as deputy director of the WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities, where he played an instrumental role in establishing the program, and helped lead 200 experts in 55 cities of China, India, Brazil, Mexico and Turkey to create more equitable, healthy, accessible, climate-friendly cities.
Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) is a leading organization in the promotion of environmentally sustainable and equitable transportation policies and projects. ITDP is headquartered in New York City, with offices in Kenya, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico and the United States. ITDP’s work in Africa spans cities such as Yaoundé, Abidjan, Dakar, Kampala, Nairobi, and Kisumu amongst others. ITDP also played a pivotal role in the implementation of Rea Vaya BRT in Johannesburg, MyCiTi BRT in Cape Town and DART BRT in Dar es Salaam.
We are pleased to have sponsorship from Nairobi Garage. The event is free and open to the public.
