The Africa Community Access Partnership (AfCAP) is providing technical assistance to foster improvements in asset management performance in selected rural road agencies in 4 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The 4 countries participating are Zambia, Uganda, Sierra Leone and the Western Cape region of South Africa.
This report presents the consolidated baseline data in road asset management for each of the participating countries relative to a framework for assessing asset management performance covering external/political factors, institutional arrangements, management of the road network, financing, technical aspects and operations. The establishment of the baseline showed that significant gaps in pre-requisites for sustainable road preservation exist in 3 project countries.
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)
