Project General Description

This project is a support for building technical capacity of the Southern Africa Transport and Communications Commission (SATCC). The technical assistance to be provided under the project will assist SATCC-TU in its task of providing technical and other advice to the SADC member countries at the regional level in the implementation of the Transport Protocol. The SADC Protocol on Transport and Communications signed in August 1996 is a significant step towards attaining the goal of achieving increased economic integration and development in the SADC member States, through the establishment of an efficient and cost-effective transport and communication system. The proposed project consists of four main components: (i) Institutional Strengthening, (ii) Improvement of Road Safety, (iii) Prevention and Control of HIV/AIDS, and (iv) Audit. The total cost is USD 2.3 million (UA 1.71 million). The project will be implemented over a period of 3 years.

Project Objectives

The project's objectives are to (i) strengthen the policy co-ordination and monitoring capacity of SATCC-TU; and (ii) reduce operational constraints on the Beira Corridor, including border delays, HIV/AIDS transmission and road accidents.


The entire SADC region will benefit from the project. The Beira Corridor will in particular benefit from the cross border facilitation, road safety and HIV/AIDS components. By the recent census in Mozambique, the population of the three provinces is 3.68 million or 22% of Mozambique total population. The project's principal target population includes inhabitants of the major cities of Beira, Chimoio, Tete, Machipanda and also towns and villages in Nhamatanda, Dondo, Gondola, Manica, Barue and Guro districts. In addition the project will target the transient international population found around the Port of Beira and the corridors leading to Zimbabwe, Malawi and Zambia.
