Aim; to increase trade and connectivity in Southern Africa, enhancing the ability of Southern African countries to trade both with each other and with the world, leading to increased employment and income opportunities, and supporting the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area. It will enable businesses to trade across borders more cheaply and easily, transporters to enjoy lower cost of shipping goods along better roads, and informal traders to cross borders with less harassment and more confidence. Beneficiaries are Southern African national governments, SADC, private sector organisations including large and small scale traders and transport operators. It will help deliver SDG 8 decent work and economic growth, SDG 9 industry, innovation & infrastructure, and SDG 13 climate action (integrating climate measures into planning of infrastructure and strengthening resilience).
