Rwanda launch for Share the Road

As a first step in launching a national Share the Road project in Rwanda, a workshop took place on 11 October 2011 in Kigali, hosted by the Rwanda Transport Development Agency (RTDA) in cooperation with UNEP. The meeting agreed to set up a multi-sector steering committee to implement a pilot project in Kigali showcasing infrasturcture for walking and cycling, with support from UNEP. The 'Share the Road' programme is initially focused on East Africa, in particular Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
