Réunion annuelle 2004 du SSATP -- Addis Abeba, Ethiopie

The 2004 Annual Stakeholders Meeting of the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) took place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, from September 27-29, 2004. As a partnership program, the SSATP Annual Meeting has an important function of enabling nationals and stakeholders to assess progress and shape the future direction and action of the program. Specifically, the 2004 Stakeholders meeting reviewed the progress and results of the current annual SSATP work program and established the framework and priorities for 2005. The core purpose of the Annual Meeting was to agree on the priorities and framework for the 2005 Work Program. The main elements of the 2005 Work Program are : policy development; capacity building; partnerships and networking; knowledge sharing; and championship and advocacy.

Renforcement des capacités de gestion et de financement du secteur routier

The road sector is going through a period of substantial change. Countries have to keep pace with expanding demand for road infrastructure as well as addressing the backlog of maintenance and its underlying causes. This situation has given rise to significant institutional reforms as countries have sought to improve road management sector. This note discusses issues related to the professional staff needs of Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA); training for capacity building; institutional strengthening of road sector institutions in SSA countries; and, contribution of international and regional training. Further, the note identify and discusses five specific areas of challenges : ensure that the total offer of capacity building opportunities responds to demand, including that in languages other than English; involve regional associations in meeting demand and program design; sharpen the definition of the specific sub-markets within the overall demand and develop relevant offerings; promote wider involvement of training institutions including those in SSA; and develop and disseminate materials for communicating innovations, and on findings and recommendations for improved road management.

Modèle de décision économique (RED) pour les routes à faible trafic

RED - Modèle de décision économique pour les routes à faible trafic -- Guide d'utilisation du logiciel & études de cas

This manual presents the Roads Economic Decision Model (RED) developed to improve the decision-making process for the development and maintenance of low-volume rural roads. The model performs an economic evaluation of road investments options using the consumer surplus approach and is customized to the characteristics and needs of low-volume roads such as the high uncertainty of the assessment of the model inputs, particularly the traffic and condition of unpaved roads, the importance of vehicle speeds for model validation, the need for a comprehensive analysis of generated and induced traffic, and the need to clearly define all accrued benefits. RED computes benefits for normal, generated, induced, and diverted traffic, and takes into account changes in road length, condition, geometry, type, accidents, and days per year when the passage of vehicles is further disrupted by a highly deteriorated road condition (wet season). Users can add to the analysis other benefits, such as non-motorized traffic, social services and environmental impacts, if computed separately. The model is presented on a series of Excel 2000 workbooks that collect all user inputs, present the results on an efficient manner and performs sensitivity, switching values and risk analyses.

Facilitation du commerce et du transport en Afrique subsaharienne -- Un recueil des instruments juridiques internationaux

Facilitating trade flows between countries belonging to the same sub-region does not only require adequate transport infrastructure, or the availability of competitive and reliable transport services. Both will be used effectively only to the extent allowed by the legal framework governing their operations. Similarly, better regional economic integration will be served not only through harmonization of national development policies, but also, and perhaps to a greater extent, through the preparation, ratification and implementation of supranational legal instruments, going from the subregion to the continent and to the level of international conventions. Those instruments provide the necessary framework underpinning the sustainable development of trade flows, themselves harbingers of economic growth and employment generation. Sub-Saharan Africa clearly illustrates this situation, where several sub-regions are working hard from East to West to establish institutional and economic ties to help stimulate the joint progress of forty-eight countries. Actually, as a result of both whimsical politics and geography, the existence in Africa of fifteen landlocked countries has only strengthened the need to codify the rules governing the exchanges between coastal states and landlocked ones, so that the latter can benefit from a facilitated access to external markets. So, while numerous efforts are at play to push ahead with the regional integration of the continent, it appeared timely to draw an inventory of the legal instruments in force in sub-Saharan Africa, aiming at facilitating transport and trade flows between countries of the region. This document presents this inventory, together with an analysis of the main components and characteristics of all listed instruments.

Initiative du SSATP sur les Indicateurs de transport -- Note d’orientation

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.
