Stakeholder’s workshop on The Role of SACCOs in Public Transport Management

The Institute for Development Studies (IDS), University of Nairobi, hosted a stakeholders’ workshop as part of a research project entitled Savings and Credit Cooperative Organisations (SACCOs) as Operational Arrangements for Paratransit Management: Case Studies of Inter-city Transport SACCOs in Kenya.

The workshop held on 7th August 2014 in Nairobi enabled stakeholders to discuss, debate, and give feedback on the preliminary findings. One of the key findings of the study is that SACCOs are important factors in enabling the inter-city passenger transport businesses to operate in a financially sustainable manner. The stakeholders supported this view but they urged for more streamlining of the sector. Among the participants at the workshop was the Deputy Secretary for Road Transport, SACCO managers GMK, 2NK, MTN and NAEKANA, and representatives of the two matatu associations.
