Experttalk: Sustainable Transport in Africa

23 June 2016, 5 p.m. in the Reichstag Building, Berlin

TUMI Friends, the German-African Business Association and the European Institute for Sustainable Transport (EURIST) cordially invite you to an evening discussion about German-African partnership in Sustainable Transport.

Under the patronage of Andreas Lämmel and Valerie Wilms, (Members of the Bundestag), and with support from Kurt Bodewig, former German Minister for Transport and current CEO of Baltic Sea Forum and UN-NGO expert, we will discuss opportunities and challenges facing development in the transport sector in Africa, particularly how ideas and concepts from Germany might contribute to sustainability. The event will be opened by Debashish Bhattacharjee (UN HABITAT Kenya), Jane Akumu (Programme Offi cer at UNEP Transport Unit), and Roger Gorham (Worldbank, tbc).

We encourage you to take this chance to meet with us and MPs to discuss the potential role an expert forum might have for sustainable transport in Africa. We believe that German experience in the transport sector can usefully accompany a sustainable development of transport in Africa! Highly dynamic development in Africa and the growing use of digital solutions offer interesting possibilities for economic, academic, and civil-societal co-operation between Africa and Germany.
