In the year 2012 the Umweltbundesamt (UBA) funded a Study on Financing
sustainable Transport in Africaconducted by Eurist.
The work has concluded now and the results of the study were published.
The overall goal was to help link future transport funding and evaluation closer to sustainability criteria and indicators – with a regional focus on Sub-Saharan Africa and the intention to discuss the transferability of the approach to other developing regions after accomplishment of the study. The expected results include the documentation of current financing actors, financing practice and transport project evaluation.
This goal goal is founded on the current problems and challenges in the African transport sector and is based on the perception that there is still a loose link of donor policies to sustainability criteria and a one-sided focus of current funding practice on infrastructure.
