The Roads Authority (RA) wishes to expand and embed the use of the DCP-DN Design Method for cost-effective design of Low Volume Sealed Roads (LVSR) in Malawi. A project has been designed to undertake Training-of-trainers (ToT) for up to fifteen (15) candidates that have previously been trained up to an intermediate level of proficiency. This inception report provides an overview of activities carried out during inception phase. The ToT is expected to be combined with the design and construction of three identified road projects in order to elevate the national trainers to an advanced level of proficiency. The trainees will be divided in two groups of 7-8 persons each and be trained in two separate courses in the beginning of November 2017 and January 2018 respectively.
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)
