As 2020 came to a close, CEDARE in collaboration with FES Egypt celebrated its publication “Mainstreaming Electric Mobility in Egypt: Seeing the bigger picture of sustainable cities“. The training programs revolving around this policy document came at a very relevant time during the COVID-19 pandemic, when one of the major challenges in preventive measures is the provision of transportation alternatives, and remembering that electric mobility is only “a” solution and not “the” solution. Among the key highlights were the reminders that fuel-quality in Egypt is a fundamental prerequisite to cleaner air and parallel planning for walkability and cycling friendliness are essential to the bigger picture of a sustainable city. An introduction to the concepts of Micromobility has also been addressed with reflections on the necessary regulations that must be developed in the coming years.
On October and November 2020, CEDARE brought together a group of ten) to individuals whose work involves activism, advocacy or education around sustainable mobility for a TOT facilitated by Dr. Ahmed El-Dorghamy.

The module covered different types of low emission mobility modes including non-motorized mobility (walking and cycling), electric mobility and public transportation.
