NASA Heliophysics Advisory Committee Meeting, 55121-55122 [2017-25042]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 222 / Monday, November 20, 2017 / Notices nshattuck on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES Abidjan to (i) improve overall travel times, traffic movement, and road safety; (ii) integrate multi-modal transport planning; and (iii) reduce household transport costs and increase revenue for businesses. • Transport Management and Planning Activity: This activity aims to build the technical and managerial ˆ capacity of Cote d’Ivoire’s roadtransport-related agencies in the areas of infrastructure asset-management techniques, and long-term road planning and maintenance. MCC funding will include the following: (i) The creation, development and institutionalization of a graduate education program in infrastructure asset management; (ii) the development of a road asset inventory and database, as well as a road safety database for Abidjan; (iii) traffic management and coordination assistance; and (iv) the development and expansion of a program that provides routine cleaning, upkeep and maintenance of the road and bridge network in Abidjan. Economic Analysis The estimated economic rate of return (ERR) for the Skills Project is 10.6 percent over 20 years. The project seeks to improve student learning outcomes and increase the number of years that students attend school. Both of these benefits are expected to increase future lifetime earnings for the participating students. The Technical and Vocational Education and Training Activity is expected to result in students acquiring specific, market-demanded skills through additional years of schooling, which results in higher employment rates and higher lifetime earnings. The estimated ERR for the Abidjan Transport Project is 22.6 percent over 20 years. While vehicle operating costs and time savings are expected to be the immediate microeconomic benefits of the project, the project is also expected ˆ to contribute to the economy of Cote d’Ivoire’s largest city by improving access to jobs, goods, and social services. Overall, the compact is expected to benefit at least 11,300,000 people over 20 years. Approximately 300,000 Skills Project beneficiaries are expected to be Abidjan residents and therefore also beneficiaries of the Abidjan Transport Project; accordingly, they have been deducted from the total number of compact beneficiaries to avoid double counting. Policy Reform and the Compact ˆ MCC and Cote d’Ivoire have agreed on several policy reform areas to support the sustainability of the compact VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:15 Nov 17, 2017 Jkt 244001 ˆ program. In the Skills Project, Cote d’Ivoire will allocate sufficient annual public expenditures for lower secondary education and TVET to support and maintain MCC’s investments by providing adequate teachers and budgets for secondary schools and operational subsidies for TVET centers. ˆ Cote d’Ivoire will also develop, institutionalize, and operationalize a national gender policy for the education sector in order to help rectify gender disparities in the Ivoirian education system. Finally, MCC plans to contribute to the modernization of the country’s outdated and ineffective teacher training program and, through the TVET investment, help the government transition from being an ineffective service provider to being a regulator and financer of training provided in TVET centers that are operated by and for the private sector. In the Abidjan Transport Project, MCC’s assistance will be accompanied by reforms designed to improve the governance and financial sustainability ˆ of Cote d’Ivoire’s road maintenance ˆ fund. In particular, Cote d’Ivoire will increase the amount of revenue allocated to the road fund over the life of the compact, reduce the debt burden currently held by the road fund, and increase road user participation in the governance structure of the road fund in order to create a more market-oriented ˆ entity. Cote d’Ivoire has also agreed on mechanisms to eliminate illegal truck parking in the zone around the Port of Abidjan, which is expected to contribute significantly to the reduction of traffic congestion in this important area of the city.
