Context of the cooperation

Luanda, the capital of Angola and a city with a population of around 9 million, has experienced very strong demographic growth over the last 50 years, without any planning. This has led to an increase in the number of cars on the road, deterioration of the roads, high levels of pollution and transport services that are inadequate to meet the very high demand. The country’s other major cities are in a similar situation, with an increase in small-scale transport services (minibuses, mototaxis, etc.) everywhere.

The Angolan Ministry of Transport (MinTrans) is aware of these problems and several mass transport projects have been presented (BRT, train), but none has yet been implemented.

MinTrans, AFD and CODATU signed a technical cooperation agreement in May 2022 to support the Angolan authorities in developing efficient, integrated and sustainable urban mobility systems. This cooperation includes cooperation activities organised by CODATU and the financing of studies to prepare projects.

Main needs

Technical cooperation is supporting the Angolan authorities in the following areas:

-Diagnosis of the transport sector (governance, supply and demand, economic issues, etc.),

-Transport operations and restructuring of the Luanda public transport company (TCUL),

Improvement and professionalisation of small-scale transport,

-Identification of one or more strategic and priority transport projects to improve mobility in Luanda and/or the country’s other cities.

This support takes the form of the organisation of themed workshops, technical visits, forums, specific technical support, and the drafting of a roadmap and terms of reference for preparing studies.
