Mobility in African City-Regions: Towards Effective Indicators and Governance

The Mobility in African City-Regions: Towards Effective Indicators and Governance project is a collaborative project between four City regions: Barcelona, Dakar, Gauteng and Maputo under the auspices of Metropolis within the framework of the Metropolis call for Pilot Projects 2021-2023. The project aims to create space for sharing experience and learning in different spheres of metropolitan life, strategically focusing on metropolitan governance, economic development, sustainability, social inclusion, gender equality and quality of life. The project seeks to develop a set of sustainable and inclusive transport indicators and drive dialogue on appropriate governance arrangements to support transport and mobility improvements. The project duration is 2 years from 2021-2023.

The GCRO is supporting the Gauteng Department of Roads and Transport (as the main signatory for the project) to lead partnership with the Barcelona Metropolitan Area (AMB) to organise, facilitate and report on the work of the participating city regions. The expected outputs are a set of transport indicators as well as a knowledge report and discussion document on COVID19 related transport impacts across the regions.


The project has kicked-off and an introductory meet and greet session has taken place between representatives from the four participating regions.
