Streets for walking & cycling: a guide for designing for safety, accessibility, and comfort in African cities

Role: Prepared by Christopher Kost, Naomi Mwaura, Advait Jani, Christopher Van Eyken.

Description: Many cities across the continent of Africa have a large percentage of walking and cycling as a mode share for trips. Addis Ababa, Nairobi, Dar es Salaam, and Lagos all have bike and walk modes shares of more than 40%. These cities are fundamentally walking and cycling cities, but often lack the infrastructure and design to make that safe and comfortable. This guidebook seeks to give guidance on how to fix that.
