Resources for better decision-making in development corridors

A platform to support improved planning, implementation and monitoring of development corridors

An online platform to provide access to evidence-based information for better development corridor decision-making. The resources are from the DCP’s research and capacity building initiatives and provide routes to better decision-making for more sustainable development corridors. Bridging the gap between science-policy and action, these resources will enable policymakers, NGOs, governmental officials, researchers and all corridor practitioners to understand corridor case studies from Kenya and Tanzania.

African Development Corridors Database

A flagship DCP output is the African Development Corridors Database. Building on previous work, this represents a comprehensive database of 79 development corridors across Africa (planned, in progress or operational). This database can help improve strategic planning, transparency, and risk assessments for decision-makers including investment banks, governments and impact assessment practitioners, by providing a tool to assess the impacts of infrastructure development.
