Workshop in South Africa
From 12-14 of June, IFRTD in collaboration with the Transport and Urban Division (TUDTR) of the World Bank, the South African Department of Transport and AGETIP is organising a workshop on TRANSPORT PERFORMANCE AND IMPACT MEASUREMENT INDICATORS.
The workshop -which is by strict invitation only- is part of ongoing consultations and takes place two years after similar consultations were carried out with selected African stakeholders in Nairobi, Kenya. It intends to broaden awareness of the initiative among key stakeholders and to invite contributions on how the process could be strengthened in a way that takes into account national priorities and long-term sustainability.
The initiative is related and linked to several World Bank activities including the Infrastructure Action Plan which aim to strengthen the commitment for collecting and maintaining accurate and timely transport sector data at country and regional levels, in a way that strengthens evidence-based analysis and decision making at different levels.
It is envisaged that this workshop will enable stakeholders drawn from a variety of countries, institutions and transport disciplines to consult on their main sources of transport sector data, and the capacities and constraints that currently exist in collecting, analysing, storing and using high quality data various transport sub-sectors.
A report of the workshop will be loaded on the web site by the end of June 2006. For more information please contact Peter Njenga, Regional Coordinator for East and Southern Africa at email@example.com
