The purpose of this project is to carry out a baseline survey of past and current research that has been undertaken on the roads sector in Uganda, and to establish a databank that enables access to such research. The study commenced on 22 November 2016.
This document presents the Draft Final Report for the study. This document incorporates survey (questionnaires, field investigations, consultations and research summaries) outcomes, proposals and recommendations.
The project entailed an evaluation of reports deemed to contain research from institutions in Uganda who are conducting roads research, as well as some international consultants who have done research for Ugandan institutions. Together with the reports, questionnaires were distributed to stakeholders to provide their perceptions of the state of roads research in Uganda. Selected field visits were conducted to evaluate sites where experiments have been conducted before. Finally, an Electronic Document Management System (EDMS) has been developed to contain the roads research information and be used in future as a repository for such research and a management support system to assist in the planning and coordination of new roads research in Uganda.
This project is funded by DFID under the Applied Research on Rural Roads and Transport Services through Community Access Programmes in Africa and Asia (AFCAP2 and AsCAP)
