Road sector reform : a tale of two countries - Part III : impact and lessons : Reforme du secteur routier : un conte de deux pays - Troisieme Partie : impact et lecons (Francês)

This is Part 3 of a series intended to share information about issues raised in various Sub-Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) reports, and the note addresses the impact, and lessons learned from road sector reforms in two countries: Burkina Faso, and Ghana. While Burkina Faso's reforms are more structured, and planned, Ghana's more complex political, and economic history have had greater influence on road sector reforms than any attempt at advance planning. The note compares the main factors in each country contributing to road management improvements, specifying that while the Ghana Road Fund has been in place for ten years, it has not been able to sustain a road maintenance financing; however, the Government has agreed to increase the fuel levy significantly over the next five years, to sufficiently maintain the road network. Conversely, Burkina Faso's Societe de Location du Materiel has provided publicly acquired equipment for lease by small- and medium-sized enterprises, allowing for wider coverage of participating enterprises at lower costs, but its drawback is that it does not necessarily equip the firms at the end of any given period. Thus the note calls for incorporation of public property, as a useful transitional phase from force account, and government ownership of capital equipment, to full-fledged private ownership, and contracting; for institutionalized procedures for sustainable road management reforms; and, for government commitment to long-term reform.
