CNA participated to Africities 8 Summit

CNA participated to Africities 8 Summit, 20th – 24th november, in Marrakesh, Kingdom of Morocco 

 

Calypso Networks Association has been invited to Africities, the United Cities and Local Governments of Africa’s flagship pan-African event that is held every 3 years in one of the five regions of Africa. It mobilizes communities and local authorities in African countries, as well as financial institutions, civil society groups and development partners at continental and international level.

Calypso Networks Association took part at the session “The revolution of sustainable mobility”. Speakers discuss about available and implemented solutions on the continent in order to increase sustainable mobility, and answer to the following questions: 

Are hybridization of modes of transport in the city and operators’  interoperability sufficiently integrated in practices and administrative processes? 

How and from whom to mobilize the necessary resources which are still today insufficient on this sector? 

This session has questioned current practices and alliances to be strengthened to innovate more and more towards a transition of the sector in Africa.

 

Paulo Barreto, our Ticketing Expert present how interoperability and seamless travels with tools adapted at each typology of city.
