Regional infrastructure for trade facilitation

​The main research questions that this project seeks to answer are:

  • What is the evidence that improvements in regional infrastructure designed to increase cross-border trade in Sub-Saharan Africa (through reducing the costs of trade, including costs caused by delays – principally transport) result in poverty reduction, either directly or indirectly as a result of economic growth?

  • What are the potential risks to the poor created by trade growth resulting from improvements in regional infrastructure?

  • What policy interventions have the capacity to increase benefits for the poor and mitigate potential harm to the poor?
