Africa Transport Technical Note No. 26

This note is based on the "Appraisal of the Road Management Initiative (RMI) Concepts Implementation in Sub-Saharan African (SSA) Countries", a study carried out using forms, and procedures prepared by the RMI, and to some extent, builds on regional reviews of the road sector in SSA countries. Implementing the RMI concept requires reforms in four complementary areas: ownership, to empower the public in taking an active role in roads management; developing financing models that promote economic efficiency, and ensure revenues for the operation, and maintenance of road networks; establishing responsibilities within the road sector; and, ensure effective management systems, procedures, and accountability.
