Urban Air Quality in Cotonou -- Executive Summary

The note highlights the conclusions of the study on Urban Air Quality in Cotonou, carried out in 2000. The purpose of the study was to identify the major source of air pollution in the city, and quantify the costs associated with such pollution. Measures envisaged to limit air quality degradation, were grouped in three categories: technical and institutional measures concerning vehicles; operational measures, to improve effectiveness in terms of pollution; and, measures allowing a decrease in travel demand, i.e., urban planning policy.

Urban Mobility -- Eleventh Steering Committee Meeting -- Introduction

This paper comprises the main reports presented during the Eleventh Steering Committee Meeting of the SSATP Urban Mobility Component. The major theme of the reports and discussions dealt with urban transport micro-enterprises. The choice of this theme reflected widespread recognition that, in Sub-Saharan Africa, the overwhelming bulk of motorized transport relies on minibuses, or medium-capacity buses. This established fact poses a number of questions that formed the central focus for meeting. How are these micro-enterprises organized and financed?

The argument presented in this report is that the relationships between improved rural road infrastructure and the provision of complementary vehicle services have not been fully understood resulting in over emphasis on infrastructure and under emphasis on the vehicle services themselves. The paper draws on evidence from cross country comparisons to conclude that there are particular problems in the rural areas of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
