ITT has been commissioned by the Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) to provide consultancy services for impact assessment of investment in the roads sub-sector. The aim of the project is to be able to identify and demonstrate the additional impact that road investments has on Kenya’s development. A framework, or methodology, will be developed that will enable KeNHA, the African Development Bank (AfDB), and other interested parties including local independent consultants, to monitor the effect of road investments across a range of impacts.
This assignment has three objectives set out in the brief:

  • To identify, assess and quantify, to the extent possible, the socio-economic, spatial and societal impacts of investment made on the road sub-sector in the past 10-15 years. This will involve the assessment of the distributional impact on the road sub-sector, on the structure of land use and its development as well as the monetized and non-monetized impacts of investment on road infrastructure projects.
  • To identify Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), establish baseline data for the indicators and devise a mechanism/ system which will help to periodically monitor and evaluate the economic and social impacts of investment in the road sub-sector.
  • To develop a guidance, note for KeNHA on identification and quantification of the direct and indirect impacts of transport infrastructure during appraising a project for potential financing.

In undertaking this assignment ITT have identified the following key activities to be undertaken:

  • A review of technical literature to inform subsequent activities
  • The selection of KPIs to identify what impacts should be monitored
  • The selection of representative case studies
  • Data collection from various sources
  • Stakeholder engagement involving KeNHA and others
  • The development of a spreadsheet framework (KENEF – the KeNHA Evaluation Framework)
  • Capacity building via the preparation of guidance and training
