Conference Background

In a changing world of technological advancements, the climate change reality has stipulated many challenges that threaten the existence and performance of life across various regions. Cities have encountered an evolutionary development of tools and methodological approaches tackling environmental challenges aiming to provide solutions for building resilient communities. The required transformation in African communities to leverage the benefits of sustainable development activities taking place in the transport sector is viable through an integrated user-oriented smart approach. An approach that builds on a microscale of digital connectivity between the users, their physical surroundings, and their social communities through the early phases of planning and development. These plans ought to include future climate risks on micro-mobility infrastructure through nature-based solutions, reduced costs, health benefits, etc., for enhanced resilience.
