SSATP Transport Indicator Initiative -- Concept Note

At the occasion of the annual meeting of the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) in Kigali in May 2003, the SSATP was requested by its members to take the lead in coordinating and promoting efforts to establish a common set of key transport sector performance indicators, and to assist to build up capacity to collect the required data in a sustainable manner. To meet the objectives of this SSATP exercise, a set of high-level indicators has been designed that span the main critical areas of transport in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Role of the World Bank in the Development of Urban Transport in Sub-Saharan Africa

During the first period the Bank's main concern was to find ways of relieving urban traffic congestion. This mainly involved the prescription of traffic management, road rehabilitation and road construction. It also involved helping the formal public transport sector become more efficient and building local capabilities to plan, implementation and monitor traffic management schemes. This focus is reflected in the projects undertaken in the Cote d'Ivoire, Mali, Senegal, Cameroon and Zimbabwe.

Profitability and Financing of Urban Public Transport Microenterprises in Sub-Saharan Africa -- An Overview of the Regional Study conducted in Abidjan, Bamako, Harare, and Nairobi

This overview discusses the financial aspects of the four studies of urban transport microenterprises referred to in the Foreword. These studies covered far more than financial issues, since the objective was to understand how such enterprises operate, and to grasp all the factors which enter into play in this transport sub-sector, taking, if not a macroeconomic, then at least a meso-economic perspective.

Case Study on Intermediate Means of Transport -- Bicycles and Rural Women in Uganda

The study reviews the intermediate means of transport in eastern Uganda, suggesting that ownership, and use of bicycles is a double-sided factor in meeting household needs, for it not only provides transportation, but serves as a means of income generation. Several factors however, influence ownership of a bicycle, namely, economic status, cultural background, and location with regard to the terrain, and infrastructure. The cost of bicycles is comparatively higher than prices received for agricultural commodities, in addition to the fact that credit availability is non-existent.

Transport and the Village

This paper, prepared under the Rural Travel and Transport Project (RTTP) of the sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) focuses on local level transport in rural Africa. Households surveys and case studies on intermediate means of transport (IMT) and the role of transport in women's lives were carried out to enhance the understanding of the circumstances under which local level transport imposes a constraint, of the nature of that constraint, and of the appropriate measures to alleviate the constraint.
