THE ROAD MAINTENANCE INITIATIVE. BUILDING CAPACITY FOR POLICY REFORM. VOLUME 1, REPORT ON THE POLICY SEMINARS
The constraints the inefficiencies in the transport sector impose on the economic development in Sub-Saharan Africa have long been recognized and have been recently underscored in the Long-Term Perspective Study of Sub-Saharan Africa prepared by the World Bank. Despite the great experience of donors in financing transport projects, the effectiveness and sustainability of past programs designed to increase the performance and efficiency of transport services have been disappointing. In this context, the World Bank, in association with the UN Economic Commission for Africa has developed the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Program (SSATP). The main objectives of the program are to improve transport efficiency through policy reforms, and define future activities, programs and initiatives for road maintenance policies in Africa.
