The transport sector is an important pillar for social development and economic growth in Africa. Yet, in most countries, it heavily depends on fossil fuels and is often the second largest emitter of greenhouse gases. Aligning transport, energy, and climate policy while using financial resources in the most efficient way can make the sector a lever of sustainable growth and prosperity.

In the High-Level Panel, Ministers of Transport from Morocco and Ethiopia and government representatives from Lagos and Cairo will discuss the opportunities and challenges of a sustainable and low-carbon development of Africa’s transport sector. The Panel will address how the transition to a sustainable low-carbon transport sector can support social and economic development in Africa, what investments and policies are needed, and how collaboration among African countries and with international partners can support a climate-compatible growth of the transport sector.
