The purpose of this report is to update the members, partners, and Executive Committee of the Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) on the status of the second year of implementation of the Third Development Plan (DP3). In accordance with the reporting requirements, this annual report covers the period January–December 2017. It also includes the plans for the coming years to ensure that the objectives set for the program will be achieved.
The year 2017 was an intense one on all fronts because the SSATP team was accelerating implementation of the activities under each pillar. Four major tasks and achievements characterized the reporting period: (1) the first annual general meeting under the DP3; (2) revision of the strategic results framework and extension of the program closing date; (3) revision of the communications strategy; and (4) launch of the sustainable urban mobility study for the first batch of eight pilot countries.
