Ashanti Mogosetsi has served in provincial government- facilitating integrated transport policy development and local level implementation between the national government and municipalities in Gauteng. She is currently fulfilling the role of a Technical Project Coordinator at the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, implementing the Low Carbon Transport Project in South Africa in partnership with South African government and key strategic mobilizers in the private sector. The policy support, awareness creation and demonstration initiatives achieved through the Project are resulting in an increase in government initiative to adopt sustainable transport solutions to reduce emissions from mobility in urban areas. The improvement of industry knowledge sharing and the extension of information to the public have been central to achieving the adoption of green transport technologies through the South African Low Carbon Transport Project.
Ashanti is a qualified Transport Economist and University of Johannesburg Alumni, with an extensive background in social and environmental advocacy work. Her endorsement of sustainability projects began when she was recognised for her community contributions and awarded the 2013 Miss Earth South Africa Leadership Programme title. Since then she has been invested in contributing to the implementation of sustainable solutions to limit the existing challenges in the transport sector. Her extensive industry knowledge has enabled her to effectively facilitate pivotal discussions in key capacity building workshops, panel discussions and conferences in the energy and transport sectors.
