Project General Description

The present intervention relates to the feeder roads project. This project is a component of the second sectoral transport programme. It concerns the improvement of 1,016 km of feeder roads in the 13 cotton production and market gardening provinces, the construction and equipment of 45 offices and accommodations in the 45 provinces, the purchase of 11,250 light equipment and their delivery to the 45 provinces, the purchase and delivery of site equipment to the CFP, the supply of 400 ass-drawn carts and bicycles for the women’s groups in the 13 cotton production and market gardening provinces, and the sensitisation of the populations of the PIA on environmental protection and sexually transmitted diseases (HIV/AIDS). The implementation of the project will contribute to the improvement of the living conditions of the rural populations in the 13-targeted provinces, notably by raising the price of the marketable surplus production and through better access to the basic social services (health centres, school, local administration). It comprises three (03) main components, namely: a) the development of rural roads; (b) institutional support; and (c) project management.

Project Objectives

The project sector objectives are to: i) foster trade through reduction of the domestic transport cost; and ii) improve the living conditions of the rural populations through a better access to the production areas and basic social services. Its specific objectives are to: i) contribute to the development of production by opening up many cotton-production and market gardening areas in the 13 provinces targeted; ii) improve the income level of the populations of the project impact area through enhancement of the value of the surplus production resulting from the improvement of the project roads; and iii) facilitate the transportation of produce towards the storage or selling points by beefing up the intermediate means of transport.


The beneficiaries targeted by the project are an estimated rural population of 3.64 million (30% of the national population), of which 49.8% are men and 51.2% are women. Rural women have an increasingly important role in agro-pastoral production, particularly through a multitude of women's groups benefiting from the close supervision of the Ministry for the Advancement of Women and the Rural Transport Program Coordination Unit.
