Leapfrogging to Sustainable Transport in Africa

Twelve Insights into the Continent’s Sector Transformation

Compiled through a dialogue with African and international experts and practitioners, this paper is meant to spark and perpetuate the discussion on the African transport transformation – not only for changemakers in African countries but also linked with the global climate and transport community. Through 12 insightful and thought-provoking perspectives, the paper tackles various areas such as enabling a just transition, electrifying vehicles based on renewables and shifting investments to sustainable infrastructure.

The publication was jointly developed by GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) and Agora Verkehrswende.
