Kisumu is the third-largest city in Kenya, after Nairobi and Mombasa. As the city grows, connectivity to education, employment, and social opportunities will be fundamental to Kisumu’s development. The city has gone through rapid economic and population growth. This has resulted in high rates of urbanisation and motorisation.
Kisumu is now at a pivotal point in its modern history. As the city’s strategic importance grows, significant investments will be required to ensure there is sustainable mobility. Conventional planning solutions have focused more on addressing the needs of motorists, neglecting the needs of pedestrians, cyclists and public transport.These has led to traffic congestion, road fatalities, air pollution, noise pollution and loss of productivity. Despite the continued growth in demand for public transport, the city lacks organized, safe and reliable public transport.
Transformation of Kisumu calls for not only better design but also for collaboration from county departments, national agencies, stakeholder groups, and residents to shape a mobility system that maximises shared value for all. In this stakeholder webinar, the presenters will take you through the Kisumu Sustainable Mobility plan. The plan highlights current transport issues in the city, ongoing and planned projects and current policies and legal frameworks. It recommends prioritization of efficient public transport and enhanced mobility through road design incentives.
