The Bank has struggled for years to develop an economic analysis methodology that could capture the so-called generated benefits from road investments. The Rural Road component of the SSATP tried to bridge the divide between the Bank and its clients who felt that the Bank failed to take into account the impact of roads on agricultural production and access to services. The problems lay generally in two areas. First, the assurance that complementary investments needed to bring about these impacts would actually be undertaken. Second, policies needed to support the increases in production and income were not in place especially concerning marketing.
