Étude sur la situation des piétons à Niamey, Niger

HealthBridge’s partner, Peaceful Roads, is focusing on the quality of the pedestrian environment in Niamey. As in many rapidly growing cities, the local government is examining transportation closely; however, this does not always translate into a focus on pedestrian safety.  

To better understand the current situation, Peaceful Roads carried out a study – centred on the main commercial area in Niamey – to determine how easily, safely and comfortably pedestrians can walk in the city. They identified, described, and mapped the pedestrian environment with the goals of raising awareness among policy-makers and the public, and identifying needed improvements.
