CEE Transportation Engineering professor Chris Cherry recently spoke at the Africa Clean Mobility Week Conference, March 12-16, by the UN Environment Program in Nairobi, Kenya. The subject of his talk was about policy opportunities to electrify motorcycles to reduce air pollution in African cities, learning from Asian experiences.
“As African nations motorize in an era of rapidly advancing technologies, there are great opportunities to leap-frog conventional transportation fuels and technologies and skip some of the growing pains that other countries have faced,” said Cherry. “I’m fortunate to help bridge policy and technology development to advance sustainable mobility in this region.”
The Africa Clean Mobility Week provides a platform for participants to discuss cleaner mobility and its impacts on health, environment, and economic growth in Africa.
