SSATP High Level Strategic Workshop -- Report

This report covers the high-level strategic meeting convened in the offices of Irish Aid in Dublin on June 28 and 29, 2006. Participants, consisting of a group of donors and African stakeholders, focused on: (i) strengthening the engagement of donors with Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) in support of Long Term Development Plan (LTDP) results -- particularly the outputs of the PRTSR; (ii) the role of SSATP in facilitating the effective use of donor resources to reduce poverty in sub-Saharan Africa; and (iii) how these issues will be addressed at the Annual Meeting and what some of the priority outcomes should be. The objectives of the meeting were to reach agreement on: 1. How to strengthen the engagement of donors with SSATP, particularly in support of transport strategies anchored in poverty reduction (Session 1); 2. the role of SSATP in facilitating the increased use of ODA for transport in SSA to achieve the goals of poverty reduction / pro-poor growth and to meet agreed principles on aid effectiveness (Session 2); 3. how issues 1. and 2. should be addressed at the 2006 Annual Meeting, and the people who should be involved (Session 3); and 4. the follow-up actions to be taken, including advance preparations for the 2006 Annual Meeting (Session 4).

SSATP Annual Report 2005

Implementation of the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) Long Term Development Plan (LTDP) accelerated in 2005. Work program activities of the LTDP intensified and started to deliver results. The program's principal objective and main focus remained that of anchoring transport in poverty reduction strategies. The year also saw increased involvement of high level policy makers in the policy development process. At the level of the African Union, the Ministers of Transport adopted transport targets and indicators for achieving the MDG. The Ministerial Forum convened during the 2005 SSATP Annual Meeting resolved, inter alia, to move ahead with the recommendations of the poverty reduction-transport strategy reviews, and other key aspects necessary to accelerate implementation of the LTDP.
