This Inception Report explains the original objectives and plans of a project to develop research capacity for low volume roads in Kenya, the current and changing institutional dynamics, the observations leading to the proposed variation, subsequent decisions and agreements; and then briefly sets out the way forward. Because of the added complexity of working with two organisations with markedly differing mandates, the dual discussions on strategies and priorities; the new concept to be developed by MRTD; and the broader application of the research outputs, the inception report is general in its nature and the roadmap of plans and actions are of a shorter horizon. For these reasons this project aims to realign the research delivery functions and to establish appropriate research activities and skills that can be more fully developed beyond the period of this assignment.
