The main objective of the report is to provide recommendations on the
ways in which the formulation of transport policy in Sub-Saharan Africa
could be improved, as to better address the needs of poorer groups in
society. Major themes are a review of the present practices in transport
policy formulation and the way which presently the needs of such poorer
people are addressed. Also the policy of the EU with respect to
transport and poverty issues has been reviewed. In this report the
lessons learned by other institutions are explicitly taken into account
and the findings have been presented in a workshop.
This note summarises the background and objectives of the commissioned study, research findings, and main conclusions.
