Report on the LUTP training session in Sousse, 22-27 October 2018

A valuable and constructive session

The 2018 “Leaders in Urban Transport Planning” (LUTP) Francophone training session took place in Sousse from 22 to 27 October 2018.

The 38 participants were from Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Senegal and Cameroon.

Trainers from World Bank, French Agency for Development and CODATU set up a program based on experimentation and case studies, group exercises and site visits, focusing on the connection between the different components of the urban transport global system.

The participants had the opportunity to visit a RFR (rapid rail network) viaduct in construction, a maintenance centre of the Transtu company and the light rail transit system in Tunis.

The training session was organised in partnership with the Ministry of Transport as well as the main Tunisian transport companies and was supported this year by the Center for Mediterranean Integration, the MobiliseYourCity Partnership, the Club of Partners of CODATU’s Master in Lome and the Belgian Technical Cooperation.

Thanks to all speakers, participants and partners!
