In Search of Evidence to Define Transport Policies: Transport Sector Data Management Systems

Data improve governance by increasing transparency and accountability. Adequate and reliable data are necessary to underpin policy decisions and to measure their effectiveness. However, in Africa few Transport Sector Data Management Systems (TSDMS) are established by transport agencies based on internal demand. As a result, there is a wide perception that high-level policy decisions in the transport sector are not taken based on evidence supported by actual data.

Africa Transport Policies Performance Review: The Need for More Robust Transport Policies

Addressing the infrastructure gap in Africa, in particular in transport, has contributed to put in place the foundation for accelerating economic growth. These efforts are indeed bearing fruits, especially in terms of improved accessibility and connectivity – new areas are getting opened up and communities are getting better connected to services. This notwithstanding, the price of transport services in Africa is still one of the highest, the quality of services is overall poor and modern transport logistics is in general lacking.

Good Policies and Practices on Rural Transport in Africa: Monitoring & Evaluation

A monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system is an essential element of the planning, design and implementation of rural transport projects and is useful in assessing whether projects achieve their strategic and development objectives. However, tracking results and being able to use them for future planning is a big challenge for developing and improving rural transport in Africa. There is a lack of evidence on both the development impacts of rural transport improvements and more importantly the benefits they bring to the rural poor.

Les instruments juridiques internationaux de facilitation du transport et du commerce en Afrique

Les infrastructures de transport demeurent essentielles dans l’optique d’une croissance inclusive et de la réduction de la pauvreté, mais les investissements consentis et leur entretien ne peuvent atteindre les résultats escomptés tant que la continuité de la chaîne des transports ne sera pas assurée. L’harmonisation des normes, opérations et processus est donc fondamentale pour faciliter le transport et le commerce international et éliminer les barrières à l’entrée des marchés.

A Review of International Legal Instruments for the Facilitation of Transport and Trade in Africa

Transport infrastructure is essential for inclusive growth and poverty reduction but the investments in building and maintaining it remain sub-optimal as long as the movement of goods is not seamless across countries and (sub)regions. Harmonized standards, operations and processes are critical to facilitate international transport and trade and to eliminate market access barriers. Many countries negotiate international treaties or become parties to existing instruments in order to eliminate such barriers and achieve better regional integration.
