The second Decade was prepared from 1989 to 1991. During this preparatory phase, ten global and eleven sectoral objectives were defined in order to make it possible to attain the decade's long-term goal, and sectoral and implementation strategies were formulated, on the one hand, for the proper preparation of the decade's program and, on the other hand, for increased efficiency in its implementation. The objectives of the second mid-term evaluation derive from both the implementation strategy for the decade's program and the above-mentioned resolution of the conference of Ministers. Essentially, they seek to evaluate the progress made in the decade's implementation by laying emphasis, on the one hand, on project execution at all levels, in particular, at the national, sub regional and regional levels and, on the other hand, on the program's impact on the development of transport and communications. Finally, the evaluation led to the preparation of a plan of action for the last three years of the decade and beyond in order to accelerate the program implementation and establish strengthened and efficient systems in Africa for the 21st century.
