Transport and Environment - Science Technology (TEST) Network


The TEST Network aims to support Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) countries in formulating and implementing sustainable transport policies which contribute to poverty reduction and sustainable economic development. TEST Network members in South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zimbabwe and Zambia work in partnership with SEI and EURIST.

TEST is funded by the EC African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) Science and Technology Programme

The project will develop a quality-assured, web-based knowledge database collating information on research capcacities, networks and activities, best practice and research needs and technology needs related to traffic congestion, air pollution and road safety.

A short-term training programme based on a needs assessment will be developed to increase capacity of stakeholder communities to prepare and submit proposals for research related to transport.

Also, media training will be given to network members to enable communication of the research results to different stakeholders.
