Promoting Non-Motorized Transport in Nairobi, Kenya

Kenya

Titre : Promoting Non-Motorized Transport in Nairobi, Kenya

Pays : Kenya

Date/Durée : November 2019

Contexte
In Nairobi, nearly fifty percent of all daily trips are made by walking and cycling. Non-motorized transport (NMT) plays an important role in increasing access to basic services, decongesting cities, improving air quality and promoting healthier lifestyles. Despite NMT being the most popular means of transport in Nairobi, used by nearly half of the residents, key challenges related to poor infrastructure, safety of users and public awareness on usage of NMT facilities remain. This makes it necessary to invest in an integrated transport system, including NMT infrastructure, that serves the needs of Nairobi residents, while safeguarding the environment.

Objectif (s)
* Enhance the existing knowledge base on NMT in Nairobi through examining current data gaps along Nairobi’s major NMT corridors. * Support NMS and other road agencies with ongoing public awareness initiatives on NMT facilities, usage and benefits. * Publish useful co-produced knowledge products that can be helpful in creating enhanced public awareness and supporting NMS in achieving its NMT objectives.

Activités
As part of this engagement, CDKN has partnered with Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) on the following : * Characterizing users on Nairobi’s major NMT corridors. * Undertaking safety audits on Nairobi’s top 10 deadliest corridors. * Identifying infrastructural and safety challenges faced by NMT users and how to address them. * Identifying trends that can be used in creating public awareness and supporting road authorities in future NMT development in Nairobi. * Production of actionable knowledge products. * Organising forums to bring key stakeholders together, including peer learning opportunities with other major Kenyan cities.
