The response of Africa Region is mainly managed by the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Programme (SSATP) and it is outlined in a presentation (PDF 348 KB). A Concept Note, SSATP Transport Indicators Initiative (PDF 48 KB), June 2004, has been agreed with partner countries.



In February 2005, the first cycle of data collection ended with the production of the 1st Cycle Excel spreadsheet (XLS 2.4 MB) that included all the collected data in participating countries. An analysis of this first cycle has been produced which led to recommendations for the second cycle of data collection.

In April 2005, a workshop was held in Nairobi in which all participants discussed the changes necessary to improve the initiative in the second cycle. The Report on the Second Collection Cycle presents the conclusion of this second cycle and how the initiative intends to do during its third cycle (see details in SSATP "Data and Indicators").

Data has so far been compiled from twelve countries: Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, DR Congo, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, Guinea, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, and Uganda.
