KTRN Background

The Kenya Transport Research Network (KTRN), based at the Institute for Development Studies (IDS) , University of Nairobi, was formed in May 2015 after the IDS long engagement with transport issues with support of development partners. The FIA Foundation and the Volvo Research and Educational Foundations funded IDS to provide support to the Ministry of Transport and to be part of a consortium of three African universities establishing the African Centre of Excellence for Studies in Public and Non Motorised Transport (ACET), respectively.

Through quarterly meetings, KTRN provides an engagement forum for scholars from different disciplines - transport sociologists, urban planners, land economists, engineers, ICT specialists, gender specialists, and transport geographers. It also provides a mentorship platform for young scholars interested in transport issues, and a place for public transport actors, including workers, policy makers and practitioners to engage with researchers.

KTRN is coordinated at IDS by Dr Anne Kamau, a Research Fellow.
