LAKE CHAD BASIN TRANSPORT SURVEY

THE NEED FOR GOOD ALL-WEATHER ROADS IS EVIDENT IN THE CHAD BASIN REGION OF CENTRAL AFRICA, WHERE FOUR COUNTRIES--CAMEROON, CHAD, NIGER, AND NIGERIA--HAVE REGIONS WHICH APPEAR TO OFFER POTENTIAL FOR EXPANDED AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT, BUT LACK AN ADEQUATE TRANSPORT NETWORK. SUCH A NETWORK WOULD HELP REDUCE THE COSTS OF AGRICULTURAL INPUTS, PRODUCTION, AND THE TRANSPORTING OF COMMODITIES OR PROCESSED AGROINDUSTRIAL END PRODUCTS. THIS STUDY EXAMINES THREE PROPOSED ROAD LINKS IN THE CHAD BASIN ADMINISTRATIVE DISTRICT. IT INCLUDES A SURVEY OF THE PRESENT ECONOMY OF THE REGION, INCLUDING DETERMINATION OF ITS NATURAL AND HUMAN RESOURCES AND THE ESTABLISHMENT OF PRIMARY AND SECONDARY ZONES OF INFLUENCE ALONG THE ROAD LINKS. /AUTHOR/
