Harare Zimbabwe trafficZimbabwe's CILT will give stakeholders the chance to suggest solutions to transport issues in cities such as capital Harare. (Image source: CT Snow)Zimbabwe's Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) is set to undertake an initiative where various stakeholders have been invited to suggest practical answers to the challenges facing the country's transport sector

According to CILT, as transport practitioners respond to the challenges of economic decline and growth, social change, demographics and the need to become more sustainable, it will provide a forum for the presentation of an discussion on robust and affordable responses.

"There is need to produce innovative and cost effective solutions to congestion, safety and travel behaviour change at a time of major budget constraint in Zimbabwe," CILT said.

The institute has invited its members and students from tertiary institutions to come up with solutions on the country's transport challenges through presentation papers.

Researchers have been invited to present papers on a range of transport-related topics, including 'transport and the environment', 'transport modelling and simulation', 'sustainable urban mobility', 'integrated public transport systems' and 'traffic integration and control'.

CILT said the papers presented by researchers would be accepted for publication and presented at a seminar to be arranged by the institute in October 2013, with awards given to the three leading papers.
