The aim of the project “Scaling up safe street design
in Ethiopia” is to strengthen the capacity of Ethiopia to better design and implement policies that prioritize the needs of pedestrians and cyclists. The project is on- going and will provide technical support to officials in Addis Ababa in their ongoing efforts to upgrade over the coming year more than 50 km of footpaths and introduce new bicycle lanes; to build on the government’s ongoing focus to better design and implement policies and make investment decisions that prioritize the needs of pedes- trians and cyclists.
The project is funded through the UN Road Safety Trust Fund. Urban Pathways supported the proposal in October 2018.
Budget: 200,000 USD

To be able to achieve these, the following sectors require some interventions in addressing climate change: Agriculture, Forestry, Transport,
