The African Transport Policy Program (SSATP) is conducting a study on institution arrangement for the management of urban mobility in Ghanaian cities, and in the Greater Kumasi Metropolitan Area (GKMA) in particular.
The main objective of the study is to define an institutional model for the governance of urban mobility in GKMA, taking into consideration the Kumasi Urban Mobility and Accessibility Project (KUMAP) under preparation.
This model when developed can serve as a blueprint for other cities in the country where urban transport is a growing concern.
A Diagnostic Report for the study contains an assessment of the main challenges hindering the efficient governance of urban mobility in Ghanaian cities, established after consulting key sector stakeholders.
The workshop took stock of governance challenges currently hindering the effective management of urban mobility in Ghanaian cities and to establish a consensus on the main obstacles and their cause amongst key government stakeholders as well as to outline potential solution and institutional scenarios to address these obstacles.
