Since its inception in 2011, the Leaders in Urban Transport Planning (LUTP) program has hosted 71 interactive training workshops worldwide, empowering 2,379 urban transport practitioners from 100 countries. Workshops focus on discussion, problem-solving, and experiential learning through case studies and group exercises as well as site visits. During workshops, participants from different cities and countries get to know each other, share their respective urban transport challenges, and find common ground in thinking through these challenges and potential solutions.
The LUTP program is partnering with local World Bank colleagues, the Transport Policy in Africa Program (SSATP) and the Tunisia’s Ministry of Transport to plan a workshop designed for participants coming from Tunisia and Morocco. A French language offering will take place from the 23 to the 27th and is designed to facilitate discussion and peer-to-peer learning around urban transport planning, with a specific focus on diagnosing urban mobility challenges, prioritizing investments, setting up effective institutions.
