Road safety policies in seven West African countries
2001 (English)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Abstract [sv]

At the end of 1999, UEMOA, the Economic and Monetary Union for West Africa,

launched a study of the road safety situation and management processes in

seven of the eight countries of the Union (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cite

d'Ivoire, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Togo), in view of formulating Communal Road

Safety Policies at the regional level. A team of African and European

"experts" was formed to establish a diagnosis on each country as well as a

global assessment of the situation in the region, and to draw proposals for

action. The final report was published in March 2000 and is now being

evaluated by UEMOA and integrated into a wider proposal for transport

policies, for presentation at a round table of donors. The present paper does

not provide a complete summary of the outcome of the study, but presents a

selection of some difficult problems encountered in the countries

investigated and directions for possible solutions as seen by the researchers

and consultants that took part in the study. Comprehensive proposals and

guidelines for Communal Road Safety Policies are not included as they have

not officially been accepted by UEMOA yet, but the original report can be

requested from this organisation in Ouagadougou. A brief outline of the

approach and methodology used is described. More complete methodological

guidelines, developed from the experience gathered through the UEMOA study as

well as previous ones carried out by Inrets (the French National Institute

for Transport and Safety Research) will be published at a later stage.
