Virtual Conference: 1-3rd December 2021

Flone Initiative is excited to announce that our signature convening in its fourth year, Women and Transport Africa Conference.

 This year we’ll delve into lived experiences, research and interventions that build the field and inspire action for a more inclusive and equitable public transport system in Africa.

Women and Transport Africa Conference invites submissions/ presentations/proposals falling into one of three tracks:

- Lived experiences (transport users and workers)
- Research
- Programs and policy interventions

We welcome applications from professionals working across all disciplines.

The conference provides a platform to share a wide range of critical research being done, as well as innovative solutions being implemented in the area of gender and urban mobility across Africa. The objectives of these sessions are to:

- Provide a platform for researchers, practitioners and policy-makers to showcase their work and their findings in a supportive and interactive manner.
- Provide a synopsis of current research being undertaken and innovative solutions being implemented across Africa by Africans and international researchers and practitioners.
- Provide researchers and practitioners with feedback, in an interactive and supportive manner, on the potential impact and importance of their work for policy and practice.
- Highlight gaps in existing research knowledge to support advocacy, policy development and innovative solutions
- Engage researchers, practitioners, civil society actors and decision-makers in discussing the priority areas for evidence to assist in moving forward policy, advocacy and practical interventions in this area
- Collaboratively develop a research agenda to meet these needs which can be delivered over coming years by national and international research programmes.
