This city profile aims to provide an overview of Freetown’s urban development with a focus on the transport sector to support pathways to sustainable urban mobility in the long term. It is the first rigorous attempt at producing evidence-based knowledge for understanding the main drivers of current development trajectories and their influence on urban mobility, accessibility, social and environmental issues in Freetown.

The objective of the city profile is to contribute to discussions in local, national and global arenas by drawing on debates about mobility transitions and sustainable development. It focuses on describing the base conditions from which to examine trajectories towards more sustainable mobility.
