June 3 2021 // MONTREAL: 7:15 AM to 8:30 AM // PARIS: 1:15 PM to 2:30 PM // SINGAPORE: 7:15 PM to 8:30 PM
In many countries of Sub-Saharan Africa, infrastructure and transport remain huge obstacles for development. Most mobility options exist as part of an informal sector, leaving many of the population’s most vulnerable with little access to it. This session will take a look at the mobility challenges facing this region and how they can be approached through a design thinking lens and solved with a human centered-approach that has the end-user squarely in mind.
-Learn through a West African case study, how to make mobility in developing countries more affordable, efficient and environmentally friendly.
-Understand the importance of data, and ensuring everyone has access to it, in achieving true innovation in mobility systems.
-Through a transport innovation lens, grasp the fundamentals of human-centered design and how to tackle problems in developing countries with an end-user perspective
