Expanding Labor-based Methods for Road Works in Africa

Using labor-based methods for road works has been an important part of the strategy to improve rural transport infrastructure in Africa over the past twenty-five years. These methods not only produce gravel roads of equal quality to those produced using equipment-based methods, but they also generate rural employment in a accost-effective manner. Although labor-based methods have proved to be a cost-effective alternative to equipment-based methods in many low-wage Sub-Saharan African countries, these methods have not been applied on large scale.

Assessment of Selected Road Funds in Africa, Case Study of Benin, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya and Zambia

Implementing Second Generation Road Funds -- Lessons Learned

The note is based on a review of experience with the operation of second-generation Road Funds in Benin, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, and Zambia. Findings of this review are based on an assessment of the structure, and process of setting up, and implementing the Road Funds, as well as an assessment of the objective achievements to date. While all countries have not moved at the same pace, they have progressed to various stages to introduce institutional, and financial reforms, in the spirit of the Road Management Initiative.

SOURCE (Standard Overall Ultralite Road Care Estimate), a large-scale benchmark tool for road networks

Over the past ten years or so, the road sector has undergone major reforms in a number of Sub-Saharan African countries. This process has been encouraged by the donor community, especially through the Road Management Initiative (RMI). New policies have been introduced, such as the off budget financing of road maintenance and the direct participation of road users in the road management entities. Ways of doing business are changing: more dependence on market mechanisms, further decentralization; new types of entities and operators.
