Description - Infrastructures in Africa. Programme for Infrastructure Development in Africa.

Infrastructure has been a significant driver of the strong economic growth in the African economies in the last years. The international transport sector in Africa requires 18 billion dollars in annual investment, 50% for operations and maintenance.

  7. Only 33% of rural Africans has access to an all-season Roads, 20% of the population in Cameroon, Ghana, Mauritania, Niger, and Tanzania must travel 2 kilometres to their main water supply
