There is a huge infrastructure deficit in Africa, with road density reportedly being only 3.6 kilometres of road per 1,000 persons compared to the world average of 7 kilometres per 1,000 persons, and road freight in Sub-Saharan Africa being 4 times higher than the world average. The rail network is limited, and more than 13 countries in Africa have no operational rail networks. Africa needs to invest in excess of US$93 billion annually to fix this infrastructure deficit. Traffic congestion in densely populated cities, delays and congestion at the ports, non-functional rail infrastructure, high costs of energy and limited air connectivity are some of the challenges experienced. Many countries lack the Infrastructure Master Plans, and where these exist, they are either not robust enough to take into account inter and multi-modal infrastructure development planning. The course will address critical issues such as policy frameworks, infrastructure planning, financing and performance management.
