Detailed description Back

The overall goal of the regional project is the 'Improved sustainability and security of the regional road transport system'. This transport system will be a factor of inclusive development in terms of gender equality, stability and regional integration. The project will, on the basis of commitments made at ECOWAS/WAEMU level, increase the freedom of movement of goods and persons, reduce the costs of interstate road transportby improving the governance of road maintenance and modernising the supply chain thanks to the gradual liberalisation of road transport activities in a competitive, regulated framework, excluding any dumping and cartelisation practices and mitigating the social costs associated with the necessary modernisation of the sector.

The specific objectives of the project are:

  1. Institutional and regulatory capacity building, together with capacity-building of administrations and relevant agencies, and greater awareness of gender issues;
  2. Administrative and technical simplification of transport;
  3. Better maintenance of the regional network and its sustainability thanks to efforts to stop overloading.
