VREF funded project:

Transforming the unwalkable city
knowledge, practices, and interventions for a more inclusive future of walking in Africa 

The project is a comparative analysis of interventions to the walking environment made by residents, businesses, and NGOs across three African cities (Maputo, Freetown, and Accra) and their influence on the experience of walking in selected informal neighbourhoods. 

We use co-produced qualitative, spatial and quantitative evidence with storytelling and audio-visual documentation of the walking experience to draw parallels between the interaction of “what people do” to change their (un)walkable environments and pedestrians’ practices and experiences.

We build on these analyses to elicit an evidence-based an inclusive policy dialogue with local and global stakeholders about transforming the unwalkable city
