SSATP Réunion annuelle 2003

The report comprises the proceedings from the 2003 Annual Meeting of the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP), and presents discussions held with stakeholders, towards moving SSATP's long-term strategic objective - the development of transport sector policies and strategies, that contribute fully to the national poverty reduction objectives, and to the promotion of regional economic integration. The main output of the Meeting was the framework for the 2004 Work Program, and identification of future priorities, and, results of the stakeholders' focus are fully consistent with the strategic direction the program is expected to take. The twin pillars of the strategy - social development and pro-poor growth, promoted by transports' contribution to regional integration, and national poverty reduction goals - set the framework for three dominant thematic areas: transport corridor management and performance; road management and finance; and, rural and urban transport services. Into these are woven priority cross-cutting themes on HIV/AIDS, environmental impact management, gender equity, safety and security, and microenterprise development. Within new challenges identified, key issues emerged, i.e., defining optimal network coverage, basic access, and funding mechanisms; mobilization; road funds; road management practices; regulatory framework regarding regional road programs; and, public-private partnerships.

La problématique de la gestion intégrée des corridors en Afrique subsaharienne

Transportation costs represent a serious obstacle for the development of trade and commerce in a number of African countries, i.e., it hinders economic growth. The New Partnership for the Development of Africa - NEPAD - identified this problem by including, within the elements of a strategic approach, the dynamics of a continent's development, thus providing sustainable responsiveness to the challenge of poverty reduction. Within this context, this document reviews the results from various field surveys, and seeks to offer perspectives on the broad obstacles found by transport operators. It provides an interesting contribution to current efforts towards an improved understanding of the measures to be taken for Africa's transport systems, which would allow a sustainable economic growth.

Plan de développement long terme (LTDP 2004-2007) -- Texte principal

This report claims that the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) has reached a turning point in its record of service to its partners. Demands on the SSATP as the single most tried and tested transport policy development program in SSA are being heard from a wider than ever range of institutions and stakeholders. These stakeholders clearly recognize the crucial role of efficient transport in Africa's development. This development plan is predicated on two linked approaches, conceptual and organizational: 1) Conceptually there needs to be a re-appraisal of the relationship between "transport" and other sectors so as to ensure understanding of transport as an essential service, contributing to the objectives of national development aspirations and to those sectors (social, productive, and economic) leading countries out of poverty; and 2) organizationally the plan proposes management and funding arrangements which will address constraints both in SSATP program management and in partner institutions. It does this through proposing an expansion of program management arrangements in Africa, and by strengthening regional economic community (REC) ownership. The paper hopes that by 2007 the program's target is that the 32 countries which participated in the 2002 Annual Conference and resolved on the long-term strategic goal should all have in place integrated transport sector strategies that are responsive to national development objectives and plans, and that each country will also have a national transport sector development priority action plan that fits within available resource envelopes. This Long-term Development Plan (LTDP), 2004 - 2007 seeks commitments from donors to maintain engagement with the program for four years so as to allow the SSATP to implement a strategy to achieve the goals set out in its mission statement and endorsed by its partners and stakeholders.

Améliorer la mobilité rurale -- Solutions pour développer les transports motorisés et non motorisés en milieu rural

This document analyzes ways to improve rural mobilization, by providing means of transportation, and affordable services for rural populations in developing countries, who by and large, lack access to transport infrastructure, and services, aggravating socioeconomic development, and poverty conditions. Several factors hamper the development of transport mobilization, and influence promotion efforts, despite budgets supporting transports improvements. In addition, markets do not provide transport services to regions where the demand is weak, i.e., the poorest segments, and less mobile communities are left behind. An integrated approach is deemed necessary, if investments are to provide sound economic and social improvements. Expansion of road networks is certainly important, though not at the expense of secondary roads, and rural roads, while the importance of private, and commercial transportation means (be it motorized or not) should neither be disregarded. Rather, favorable policies, and operational frameworks would allow the private sector, and nongovernmental organizations a playing role. Pilot operations could in addition, promote inter-modal transportation to increase productivity in zones of lesser populations, and lower incomes, while transport planning should take into consideration vulnerable groups, and women's needs. Based on this analysis, planning should consider financial, regulatory, and connectivity factors, to encourage inter-modal transportation, and private participation in transport services.

Guide de mise en concession ferroviaire -- Application aux réseaux africains

The report contains the guidelines for railways concessions, which present the methodology for regrouping a set of instruments, aimed at setting the operational structure for concessions within the railways transport sector. Following the definition and characteristics of concessions, the report examines the status of reforms in Sub-Saharan Africa, synthesizing main experiences. It then specifies issues to be pursued, in order to maximize satisfactory concession operations, and, analyzes the requirements needed for the potential integration into a concessions convention. Selection procedures are analyzed for an efficient implementation of concessions processes, and the guidelines further provide a framework that include types of terms of reference; texts on confidentiality, transparency, anti-corruption, and guarantee agreements; pre-qualification, and selection documents; concessions convention sample, among others. The analysis forms the basis for the implementation, and operational conduct of future concession agreements.

SOURCE, (Suivi normalisé, global et léger de la gestion de la route) une méthode de suivi des performances des réseaux routiers, à grande échelle

Over the past ten years or so, the road sector has undergone major reforms in a number of Sub-Saharan African countries. This process has been encouraged by the donor community, especially through the Road Management Initiative (RMI). New policies have been introduced, such as the off budget financing of road maintenance and the direct participation of road users in the road management entities. Ways of doing business are changing: more dependence on market mechanisms, further decentralization; new types of entities and operators. The resulting new institutional framework has evolved through the experiences of various countries in the developing world and the transition economy countries. Sub-Saharan Africa has drawn inspiration from Latin America and in turn Central and Eastern Europe is learning from the experiences of West and East Africa. It is a process of iteration in which many countries, despite blockages and setbacks have undeniable progress
