Stakeholders to involve:

  • Ministry of transportation
  • Ministry of environment
  • Ministry of local government
  • Municipalities
  • Public at large 

Sub theme: Pedestrian Infrastructure

Enable and guide better universal accessibility by raising awareness on the importance of environmentally friendly transportation systems.

Provide transportation infrastructure and services that are safe, affordable, equitable and that provide social justice, ensuring no transportation-disadvantaged people are left behind.

Encourage a shift towards clean and environmentally friendly transportation by reducing the use of vehicles, cutting residents’ expenses on fuel and helping decrease CO2 emissions.

Promote healthier and more sustainable lifestyles through walkability.
