This infographic was produced by Edna Odhiambo, a participant of the Young Leaders in Sustainable Transport in 2019. Active mobility accounts for almost half of all daily trips in Nairobi making it the most commonly used means not to mention a low-carbon option that should be encouraged. Active mobility users contend with lack of safety as they are the most vulnerable on Kenyan roads, poor air quality and lack of adequate infrastructure. With a total of 12 government institutions having mandates that affect walking and cycling’s safety, air quality and infrastructure, the author highlights the following factors that can improve the walking and cycling user experience:

  1. Often ignored complementary of roles among relevant government institutions;
  2. Possible overlap of functions; and
  3. Areas of possible collaboration

It was informed by interviews with stakeholders in the Nairobi Non-Motorized transport Sector and desktop research.
