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. They summarize the situation of transport through 4 focus areas, which are deemed crucial for poverty alleviation and growth: road network management; rural accessibility; urban transport effectiveness; and corridor effectiveness. These indicators and their rationale are detailed in this note.
