Policies for sustainable mobility and accessibility in cities of Mali - Diagnostic Study
The present study aims to prompt a change in thinking about accessibility and mobility, and to raise awareness among decision-makers so that they will implement strong policies, strategies and operational practices that make an effective contribution to improving transport and mobility in urban areas of Africa.
This diagnostic report aims to identify the main mobility and accessibility issues in Malian cities by analyzing five priority themes:
- Strengthening the institutional framework for urban transport management;
- Bolstering funding sources devoted to urban transport management;
- Improving the performance of public transport and increasing ridership;
- Fostering meaningful participation of the private sector in urban transport management;
- Improving multimodal planning and the functioning of city centers.
It was drafted after a first mission to Bamako and, later, in Kayes to gather data and talk with the local and national stakeholders. It is the result of an in-depth analysis based on the EASI conceptual framework. It includes a diagnosis of urban mobility in Mali, based on the existing literature, the data obtained, and interviews.
