Transport and infrastructure

Selected references


The existence of transport infrastructures adapted to economic operators' needs is a vital necessity for countries. This is why funding agencies finance a great many sectoral transport programmes, which fall within the strategies defined by the national authorities of the countries concerned, defining the desired balance between the different modes of transport, the respective roles of the public and private sectors, and the financing principles of transport infrastructure construction and maintenance.


The assignments carried out by SOFRECO fit into this context and focus on the following areas:


Transport policy


  • Support for the definition of transport policy and for planning and programming.
  • Development of national transport strategies, particularly in rural areas.
  • Definition of the roles of all the public and private actors, including the local authorities, in the transport sector, development of the appropriate regulatory framework and recommendation of public-private partnership mechanisms.

  • Role and organisation of the ministries in charge of transport.
  • Support for the institutional capacity building of transport regulatory agencies.
  • Development and implementation of training programmes intended for all the actors of the transport sector, both public and private.
  • Technical support to Road Maintenance Funds with a view to the improved management of road markets.
