"The Maputo Development Corridor is the largest and most successful development corridor initiative thus far in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region, if not within Africa as a whole. It has overcome a range of challenges to make a significant contribution towards regional economic integration. As such, it is an example from which lessons can be drawn for other corridor initiatives within the region. This policy briefing examines the establishment of the Maputo Development Corridor; the role played by public–private partnerships in this regard; the achievements of the initiative; the remaining challenges and constraints; and the lessons that can be learnt for future development corridor initiatives."
