The World Resources Institute (WRI) announced it has launched, in partnership with the French Development Agency (AFD), a challenge to reward initiatives that aim to transform the transit systems in Africa by utilizing technology.

The DigitalTransport4Africa (DT4A) Innovation Challenge focuses on sustainable mobility initiatives, particularly those related to artisanal or "informal" transport in African cities through innovative digital tools and technologies. It is open to NGOs, research and academic institutions, and private companies. All eligibility and application conditions are available at digitaltransport4africa.org. The deadline for submissions is February 16, 2022, at 11:59 p.m., East African time.

The four best digital innovations, according to the jury, will each receive a $30,000 award to implement a new initiative over 12 months.
