10th UEMOA-Trade Hub report on road harassment published

Since 2006, UEMOA and USAID’s West Africa Trade Hub have published quarterly reports on road harassment along primary corridors in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali and Togo. In 2009, Senegal joined the initiative, with the Bamako-Dakar corridor, and in January 2010, Cote d’Ivoire joined, with the Abidjan-Bamako and Abidjan-Ouagadougou corridors. The 10th report shows encouraging signs of progress: overall, the number of checkpoints, levels of bribery and lengths of delays have all decreased compared to the previous quarter’s report. In Ghana, particularly, the level of bribery has dropped markedly – by 72%. Senegal, however, has been an exception to this trend: bribery and delays have increased on the Dakar-Bamako corridor and it still has the greatest density of checkpoints per 100 km of road – about 4.
