MINDUH to Ensure Sustainable Urban Mobility in Yaounde and Douala

A programme to elaborate Sustainable Urban Mobility plan has been launched this Thursday 18th January 2018 in Yaounde.

The Programme which is out to correct Urban disorder basically in Yaounde and Douala was officially launched by the Minister of Housing and Urban Develoment Jean Claude Mbwentchou.

During the occasion the Minister noted that the reason for the poor town planning system in Yaounde and Douala is as a result of rapid population growth that has resulted to traffic congestion, insecurity, unsanitary problem, increase in pollution and gas emission partly caused by climate change.

He however called on all stake holders in the Urban sector to continue to mobilise resources needed to boost the “Mobilise Your City Project.” A project that is aimed at assisting Cameroon to calve out an Urban Mobility plan that meets international standard according to its Project Manager Maël Martie.

The Project is out to facilitate mobility for all, preserve the environment, make towns attractive, evaluate the expenditures placed on both public and private
transport, improve the behaviours of users.

The programme was born on the hills of a Prime Ministrial text signed in September 2014 clearly stating the requirements of an integrated Urban Transport Sector.

This includes: Modernise Urban infrastructure; Development and integration of network; Finance and maintenance.

Stakeholders represented at the occassion hail from the following organizations and Ministries: Mobilise Your City, the French Development Agency; GIZ; the Ministry of Transport, Public Works, Finance, Economic Planning and Regional Development, Yaounde and Douala City Councils
