Over 139,000 cases and more than 3,900 deaths in 54 countries across Africa - that was the tally on May 31, 2020. COVID-19 has been as brutal here as in almost all parts of the world. And one of the sectors that has ground to a halt is public transportation.
Now, as many African governments begin slowly easing the lockdowns and allowing public transportation services to resume, there is an urgent need for clear guidelines for operating these transport systems while ensuring the safety and health of commuters as well as operators and consider long term sustainability of the systems for clean air.
Additionally, the pandemic offers an opportunity to rethink, rebuild and redesign public transport services in African cities into sustainable transportation to reduce overall health risks and toxic exposure to polluted air.
Join us a discussion how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted air quality, tranport and mobility in cities of Africa and the way forward, with African and Indian experts.
