The report was carried out by the Laboratory of Human Geography (LABOGEHU) at Cheikh Anta Diop University, Dakar, Senegal and the Global Labour Institute (GLI) in Manchester, UK. It highlights the difficult working conditions and major issues faced by workers, including job insecurity, long hours, low pay, sexual harassment, police harassment and lack of facilities.  It also looks the impact the new BRT system will have on the current workforce and provides an estimate of the number of livelihoods that may be at risk.
