Partners from Tanzania, Kenya, China and UK are coming together to build capacity so that development corridor decision-making can be based on sound scientific evidence and effective use of available planning tools and procedures.
The Partnership is building capacity among researchers, practitioners, government and private sector actors to deliver sustainable development corridors in East Africa. This include increasing availability of the best tools and analyses and the skill to use them.
