The 2018 Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) Annual Meeting (AGM), is scheduled to take place in Abuja, Nigeria, from July 2-6, 2018. The AGM conforms to the Governance of the Program, which calls for representatives of all official member countries to meet annually to review the progress of the Program, confirm its annual work program and share knowledge under a Transport Forum platform. This is the second meeting under the Third Development Plan (DP3) and it is expected to host approximately 200 participants from 41member countries, at the level of Ministers, permanent secretaries or directors.

SSATP, established in 1987, is an international partnership which comprises 41 African countries, Regional Economic Communities (RECs), continental institutions of the African Union Commission (AUC) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA), public and private sector organizations, and international development agencies and organizations. SSATP aims to facilitate policy development and related capacity-building in the transport sector of Africa. It supports sound policies that lead to efficient, safe and sustainable transport for the people in Africa. SSATP is recognized as a key transport policy development forum in Africa, bringing together decision makers and stakeholders, while developing networks of specialists - researchers, operators and consultants - in transport related fields in Africa.

The DP3, whose cycle runs from (2015-2019), presents an opportunity for SSATP to focus on strategic priorities where it has a comparative advantage to effectively respond to the challenges facing the transport sector in Africa. SSATP’s DP3 Program is structured around three thematic pillars: Pillar A: Integration, connectivity and cohesion; Pillar B: Urban transport and mobility; and Pillar C: Road safety.
