2019 Annual Meeting Proceedings
The central theme of the Africa Transport Policy Program’s 2019 Annual General Meeting (AGM) was “Positioning Africa for a Sustainable Post-2020 Road Safety Agenda.” This report captures the main conclusions and recommendations coming out of the discussions held at the AGM and its associated events on November 25-29, 2019 in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. In accordance with the reporting requirements, at the meeting, the Program Management Team presented its annual report covering the January–December 2018 period. Although the primary objective of the AGM is to report on the implementation of SSATP activities and the likelihood of the program achieving its intended outcomes, this year’s meeting also provided an opportunity for shaping the future of SSATP’s next strategy cycle - the Fourth Development Plan (DP4), attending thematic group workshops, and learning and sharing experiences. The AGM also featured partner sessions aimed at fostering collaboration with partners working in the same thematic areas covered by the SSATP’s pillars, namely regional integration, urban transport and mobility, and road safety. Overall, it gave the SSATP team a unique platform for advocacy, sharing good practices, and receiving feedback from its member countries, partners, and other stakeholders.
