MobiliseYourCity's projects in Africa
MobiliseYourCity has 34 member cities in Africa with a total population of over 51 million, and 8 national governments in member countries with an aggregate urban population of over 100 million. Capitals and major cities in West and Central Africa and the Maghreb are represented, including Abidjan, Yaoundé, Douala, Dakar, Kumasi and Maputo, as well as Casablanca and Rabat.
The French Development Agency (AFD) is involved in almost all MobiliseYourCity projects in Africa and is the leader of the partnership's activities on this continent. With the participation of CODATU and Cerema, AFD supports the preparation of 11 Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs), 7 of which under direct management, and 4 under the responsibility of local authorities. Two of these SUMPs have been finalised and approved in 2019 and are among the first SUMPs completed under the MobiliseYourCity partnership.
The Partnership has also supported the development of National Urban Mobility Policies (NUMPs) in Cameroon (by AFD) and Tunisia (through a collaboration between AFD, GIZ and CODATU), as well as various technical assistance to 6 cities and national governments.
