The workshop is tailored to the learning needs of the audience and covers a wide range of urban transport challenges. It focuses on active mobility and intermodal integration drawing from the Netherlands experience.


LUTP Mentorship Program

The LUTP Mentorship Program (LUTP-M) is designed to provide mentoring support to alumni of Leaders in Urban Transport Program (LUTP) workshops willing to improve or resolve a mobility issue in their city. LUTP Mentorship program Africa (SSATP-LUTP-M) was launched during the LUTP workshop held in Kumasi, Ghana on September 25-30, 2022. During the weeklong workshop, time was allocated so that participants could work in groups to discuss ideas to improve an urban mobility issue in a city. Project ideas had to be independent, innovative, and implementable. The SSATP-LUTP Africa mentorship program was implemented over a period of 6 months between March and November 2023 with the generous financial support of the Partnership Funds for Sustainable Development Goals.


Transformative Insights for Urban Transport Planners in Africa and Beyond

In June 2022, the World Bank launched the Douala Urban Mobility Project (PMUD) which aims to improve urban mobility and support inclusive urban and economic development along select Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridors and feeder lines. Its design was spurred by the pressing need to alleviate urban congestion, reduce travel times, and supply safer and more efficient transport options for Douala's residents. It is against this backdrop that the World Bank (WB) partnered with the Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) to organize the Leaders in Urban Transport Planning (LUTP) training workshop hosted by the Doula City Council from June 19-23, 2023.
