The Medium to Long-Term Strategic Framework Study (MLTSF) For Infrastructure Development will establish a common vision among all stakeholders on the way ahead for NEPAD infrastructure program. It aimed at promoting private sector participation in the financing of infrastructure projects and programs and also meeting the economic and social aspirations of NEPAD. The study will provide the decision makers at the levels of NEPAD secretariat, ADB, RECs, sector organizations as well as development partners, with sufficient information and a strategic framework for monitoring the implementation of infrastructure programs/projects under the NEPAD framework and will propose measures to accelerate the implementation of on-going STAP projects. An important role of the MLTSF is to foster cross-fertilization and dissemination of good practices among Regional Economic Committees (RECs) and infrastructure developers. This study will be carried out in two Parts. Part 1 will be carried out over a period of six months and will deal with the recommendations of the STAP review 2003 and 2004 and will also identify infrastructure gaps, in the four sub-sectors: energy, transport, ICT and water of particular relevance for the competitiveness of Africa. Part 2 will be carried out over a period of about eight months, and will propose strategic goals and targets and related options to address Africa’s infrastructure gaps, and will help RECs and sector organizations to prepare medium term to long term strategies and programs to pursue these goals.
The overall objectives of the MLTSF Study are to provide a strategic framework for the development of infrastructure on the continent based on coherent strategic goals, to define criteria for selection of projects under NEPAD infrastructure programme, and to define and institute a monitoring framework to track gaps and progress.
The main beneficiary of the project are Regional Economic Committees (RECs) and the NEPAD initiative though its Programme for Infrastructure Development In Africa (Pida).
