Africa's Infrastructure: Railways

The Africa Infrastructure Country Diagnostic (AICD) has data collection and analysis on the status of the main network infrastructures. The AICD database provides cross-country data on network infrastructure for nine major sectors: air transport, information and communication technologies, irrigation, ports, power, railways, roads, water and sanitation.

The indicators are defined as to cover key areas for policy making: affordability, access, pricing as well as institutional, fiscal and financial aspects. The analysis encompasses public expenditure trends, future investment needs and sector performance reviews. It offers users the opportunity to view AICD results, download documents and materials, search databases and perform customized analysis.
