On February 20th, 2013, the Center for Sustainable Urban Development (CSUD) and the Kenya Institute for Public Policy and Research Analysis (KIPPRA) will host a seminar on ‘Smart sustainable transportation for Nairobi: creating an open access data base for public transit’.  The event will take place in Nairobi, Kenya and will include particpants from the civil service, academic and public sectors.

Little reliable data exists for Nairobi’s mass public transit/para-transit system. Yet this data is both possible to collect and critical to urban planning, technological innovation, and research. This workshop introduces a new project supported by the Rockefeller Foundation, which seeks to create an open access public transit database for Nairobi. It presents why this project matters, progress to date and challenges. The aim of this initial small workshop is to introduce the project and get feedback, ideas and possible partners moving forward.
