African Transport Research conference 2024

Date: 05 Mar 2024 Venue: Graduate School of Business Conference Centre, University of Cape Town, V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, South Africa

Africa is urbanising rapidly, raising enormous infrastructural and transport challenges that jeopardise the social and economic potential of the continent. Already, its countries contend with the immense challenge of providing sustainable and affordable connectivity and accessibility within and between cities, between countries and with the rest of the world. Both in terms of passenger transport as well as in terms of freight transport and logistics. These challenging conditions, however, also provide transport professionals with a wealth of interesting and relevant opportunities to advance transport research and solutions for Africa and beyond. The first ever African Transport Research conference (ATR-2024) will bring together a wealth of interesting and relevant opportunities to advance transport research and solutions in Africa and for Africa – in a beautiful world-class conference setting in Cape Town, South Africa. Organisers are Centre for Transport Studies of the University of Cape Town, in partnership with the Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF). For VREF the conference is a part of their Mobility and Access in African Cities programme (MAC). The conference is open to researchers from all over the world who work on African transport in their scholarly activities.
