The Fourth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD IV) held in May

2008 emphasizes the importance of regional infrastructural development for the acceleration of economic growth in Africa. Furthermore, the African Union (AU) and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) have highlighted the need for regional transport development to facilitate the intra-regional trade and poverty reduction.

From such perspectives, the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has conducted a study for formulating desirable regional transport programs in the Southern African region, which has the highest cross-border traffic in Africa and significant potential for further economic growth due to its abundant mineral resource deposits.

This study proposes regional transport programs in the Southern African region based on three field visits conducted during September 2009 and March 2010
