There are huge variations in the levels of infrastructure development in African countries and the five regions of Central, Southern, West, North and East. Chapter Nine outlines some of the principal ongoing infrastructure challenges from a regional perspective by focusing on the East African sub-region. Particular focus is put on water, sanitation, energy, surface transport and ICT. The progress made to date is evaluated in the light of recent studies and new data. It notes that in recent years, improvements have been made in the access to improved water and sanitation, internet density and road corridors. There are important growth opportunities in productivity-related infrastructure areas – namely, energy production, logistics and ICT.
