Cost benefit analysis of non-motorized transport infrastructure projects

Non-Motorized Transport  (NMT) has immense benefits for individual users, as well as society at large, through improvements to physical health, air quality, the environment,  climate change, personal finance, accessibility, mobility and the empowerment of vulnerable groups. Therefore, NMT infrastructure -particularly well-planned, high quality  facilities in a  comprehensive  network is essential  to achieving economic and social equity, especially for the urban poor in developing countries.

This report and its supplement aim to advance the development of NMT-PAT for UN Environment’s ‘Share the Road’ programme. This advancement is facilitated by testing its suitability for the African context by analysing four case study scenarios in Nairobi, Kenya.
