AFRICA CLIMATE WEEK 2021
as a Catalyst for Sustainable Mobility in African Cities
Digitalisation is a crucial enabler of the sustainable mobility worldwide. In Africa, the mapping of complex existing systems has led to innovations and new service provision models. Digitalization continues to present an opportunity for transformation of the mobility sector in Africa – including reducing emissions, improving air quality and achieving a more equitable urban context across classes and genders.

as part of the Africa Climate Week, Virtual Thematic Sessions (September 26-29), Hosted by the Government of Uganda.
The ACW 2021 Virtual Thematic Sessions take the pulse of climate action in the region, explore climate challenges and opportunities, and showcase ambitious solutions. These sessions focus on priorities identified earlier in the year at the Virtual Regional Roundtables and the outcomes will be carried forward to the Ministerial Sessions later this year. This is an opportunity for regional stakeholders to have their voice heard and contribute to COP 26.
