It is clear that after the implementation of the first Decade of Transport and Communications Decade for Africa (1978-1988), the region had not developed Institutional and Human Resources capacity to adequately operate and maintain transport and communications infrastructure and services. In view of this9 and before commencement of the Second Transport and Communications Decade for Africa (1991-2000), a UNDP project was launched which aims at creating an effective system for planning, developing and utilizing human resources with transport ministries and agencies. The project is to identify the factors in the Africa region that have constrained the development of the sector, provide a clear understanding of. the nature of those factors and make policy recommendations for implementation during the second decade. The Economic Commission for Africa, together with the United Nations Specialized Agencies concerned with the development of the sector have embarked on a new approach to the problem which includes preparation of case studies and modal reports and sub regional and a regional workshops.
