For the first time, a regional report on road harassment is now available. The World Bank-funded Abidjan-Lagos Corridor Organization, USAID’s Agribusiness and Trade Promotion project and USAID’s West Africa Trade Hub have collaborated to compile their data on road harassment. Although each organization does differ – slightly – in their methodologies, the report makes a compelling case for action to remove trade barriers across West Africa.
