The proposed operation is for an ADF grant of UA 36.67million and a TSF loan of UA 33.33 million to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), to finance the Bukavu-Goma Road Development and Asphalting Project, Phase 1, Bukavu-Nyamukubi Section. The project involves developing the Bukavu-Goma Road, Bukavu-Nyamukubi section, improving some of the main roads and ramps of the RN2 in Bukavu for a total of 117 km and rehabilitating related infrastructure in the South Kivu province. The province is heavily landlocked due to the advanced state of deterioration of its road network. The project will help to open up the central region of the DRC (Kasai-Oriental and Kasai Central, Sankuru and Lomami provinces) by linking it to the eastern part of the DRC and providing it with a connection to the ports of Mombasa and Dar es Salaam. It builds on the Bank’s interventions and those of the TFPs to open up the central and eastern parts of the DRC, while offering an opportunity for national and regional integration. The project has three components:(i) Infrastructure; (ii) Capacity building and studies; and (iii) Project management and monitoring. It will be implemented from January 2022 to December 2026, i.e. for 60 months.
The project's sector objective is to help open up the North and South Kivu Provinces and to reduce the level of poverty among the population. Specifically, it seeks to improve the quality of service of the Bukavu-Goma highway transport network as well as the living conditions of people in the project's impact area.
The RN2 section targeted by the project is entirely located in the South Kivu province. The project's direct impact area has an estimated population of 8,000,000, of which 4,080,000 are women, i.e. 51%of the overall population. The project will directly or indirectly target 40%of rural households in the South-Kivu province (400,000 families). The project will also benefit production support service promoters (artisans, service associations, transporters, collectors, etc.), technical staff of the ministries concerned in the region, as well as NGOs active in the project intervention area. Therefore, in addition to the large female population and the under-20s, local authorities and economic operators will benefit from the establishment of basic infrastructure and the revival of economic activities in the region.
