The Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) promotes the development and implementation of sound transport sector policies and strategies, through and with transport sector professionals in SSA, in support of sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction among its partner countries. SSATP is now planning its 2008-2011 Development Plan (DP-2), the second four-year cycle of the programmatic approach adopted in 2004 (2004-2007).
The strategic objective of the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Program (SSATP) for the period 2004-2007 is to anchor national transport strategies firmly in national goals and strategies for poverty reduction. To achieve this objective, a participatory process that enables country stakeholders to review and adapt their poverty reduction and transport strategies is being progressively implemented in SSATP member countries. This report presents an overview of the progress made by November 2005 in implementing Poverty Reduction-Transport Strategy Reviews (PRTSR) in SSATP member countries.
