Publication: Emerging Good Practice in Overload Control in Eastern and Southern Africa : Selected Case Studies
Pinard, Michael Ian
The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), Southern African Development Community (SADC) and the Southern Africa Office of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) working under the Regional Economic Communities Transport Coordinating Committee (REC-TCC) established under the leadership of the Sub- Saharan Africa Transport Policy Program (SSATP) have identified vehicle overload control as one of the priority areas. This paper is the third in a series of three publications dedicated to the overwhelming problem of overloaded vehicles damaging roads throughout Africa. The first paper presented the overall problem and related guidelines on developing sound and sustainable control measures based on lessons learned. These lessons learned captured in the second volume are from experiences collected in Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Botswana, four countries where some good practices are emerging that could serve as a platform for wider replication in the Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) region. The selection of these countries to be used as case studies was based on a previous survey carried out in some 18 countries representing four Regional Economic Communities (SADC, COMESA, ECOWAS and CEMAC).
