Cognisant of the need to strengthen road research capacity in the country, the Government of Malawi, through the Roads Authority, requested for technical support from AfCAP for the activities to develop and support the implementation of a Strategic Plan for the establishment of sustainable road research capacity building programme in the country. This Strategic Plan was developed through consultative meetings and workshops with key stakeholders in the road sector. Outcomes of the situational assessment are presented, identifying the gaps. The linkage of the Strategic Plan to national transport policy framework is established. Institutional arrangements, including actions plans with time-lines are presented for the implementation and operationalization of the programme to ensure sustainable road research capacity building in Malawi.
