Part of the The Urban Book Series book series (UBS)


In this introductory chapter, we briefly sketch the transport and mobility situations of African cities today. We highlight the urban mobility and transport problems that are becoming increasingly pronounced as urban areas in Africa have expanded in population and physical size. We also introduce the five thematic focus of the book, and set the background and context for the rest of the chapters of the book.
