Nairobi to invest in walking and cycling

22 April 2015

Kenya’s capital, Nairobi, will invest twenty per cent of all its road budget towards low carbon transport, the city’s Governor has announced.

The policy is the first scaled-up success for the ‘Share the Road’ initiative of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the FIA Foundation. 

The policy will act as a catalyst in creating a safe, cohesive and comfortable network of footpaths, cycling lanes and tracks, green areas, and other support amenities. It will also spearhead the introduction of laws and regulations to ensure that NMT facilities and
areas are prioritised.
