Under the theme "Connecting Africa through Smart, Safe and Resilient Roads: Stimulating Growth and Trade on the Continent", the conference will gather road specialists in order to examine and discuss ways to improve our road networks, particularly in Africa.

In parallel, the seminar organised by PIARC will address the challenges of safe and efficient road transport and the role of low traffic roads in rural connectivity.

In this context, PIARC will organise a seminar with two of its International Committees, the Technical Committees 2.2 "Accessibility and mobility in rural areas" and 3.1 "Road safety". It is well known that these topics are important in all countries, regardless of their level of economic development. This seminar will address them in all their aspects, including the challenges of safe and efficient road transport and the role of low traffic roads in rural connectivity.

More broadly, it will be an opportunity to present all the Association's activities in this very dynamic region, including the next World Road Congress to be held in Prague (Czech Republic) in October 2023.
