3.4 Identifying indicators of good transport governance

This working paper addresses the poor performance and governance in the sub-Saharan transport system. It draws from a study by the Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program between September 2011 and January 2012, which sought to define a set of suitable transport governance performance indicators that can be easily collected and consistently replicated in several countries. The indicators are expected to help track the main issues in the transport sector, advocate for policy change and demonstrate in a measurable way the quality of governance in a particular country, sector or sub-sector.

The study collected data from Mali, Tanzania, Kenya and Zambia to determine whether there is a consensus on what transport sector governance means in practice. It also sought to show why governance matters, how it can be measured, in what priority ways improvements in governance might make a real difference in the sector and its contribution to national development.
