In Gaborone, the capital city of Botswana, the transport sector is one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. Use of motorized vehicles is already a significant source of GHG emissions and it’s growth also increases traffic congestion, accidents and air pollution. Therefore the city wants to facilitate cycling and walking. Currently the share of cycling is low, 0,4% of the urban modal split, due to lack of road safety, low image of cycling, no variety of low-cost quality bikes, limited repair facilities and lack of a civil society organisation advocating bicycle use. For implementation of infrastructure for cycling and walking, the city allocated US$ 1.365.000 with the objective to implement a demonstration system for cycling and walking accompanied by a promotional campaign and review of the current policy, legal and institutional framework. The UN Global Environment Facility added US$ 892.000 for barrier removal activities.
