Transport en Afrique Note technique No 39

Within the context of rapid urbanization, and expansion of urban poverty in Africa, the vast majority of the population have experienced difficulties in attaining its daily mobility and sustain needs due to the more and more difficult transport conditions. The note addresses the most problematic dimensions of the mobility of poor people, and the extent to which such displacement worsens their condition, based on a duel research, conducted in Conakry and Douala by the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP). The review provides a better understanding of the current conditions in both cities, among poverty, daily mobility, employment access, as well as access to education and basic services, based on a field study.
