MOOC Integrating land use and mobility planning for sustainable cities : registration now open!

This online training course has been designed by Transitec and Urbaplan as part of the African Cities Lab to enable urban professionals in Africa to master the tools and methods needed to meet the objectives of linking urban planning and mobility policies.

The course is structured into five chapters. Each chapter develops tools at different scales: from the metropolis to the street, from the commune to the neighborhood. A final, transversal chapter is made up of thematic webinars.

In each chapter, François Laurent (urbaplan) and Julien Allaire (Transitec) take it in turns to discuss themes linked to mobility and urban planning, highlighting the challenges of linking these two fields and the methods for achieving them.


The MOOC “Sustainable urbanization in Africa: tools and methods for articulating urban planning and mobility strategies” is aimed at urban development and mobility practitioners in Africa. It is based on the multiple, and often shared, experiences of two consultancies, urbaplan and Transitec, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa and the Maghreb.

In an era of climate disruption and ever more vigorous urbanization in Africa, with urban challenges that are multiplying and becoming more complex, we present you with tools and methods to meet these challenges.
