Project General Description

The present Rehabilitation Project (RR) is consistent with the Government’s economic and social recovery policy, the interim PRSP and the African Development Bank’s Guinea-Bissau CSP. This Government policy seeks to: (i) consolidate peace and national reconciliation; (ii) alleviate the socioeconomic effects of war; and (iii) define a strategic framework for future development. The project should facilitate the rehabilitation of 13 schools and public latrines in Bissau, sanitation of the Bandim market, the granting of 56,000 micro-credits to raise the funding level by UA 0.12 million, the training of 96 local managers and NGO representatives, 396 extension workers and 30,000 grassroot community members as well as the training and vocational re-integration of 600 ex-servicemen and unemployed youths. Other social infrastructure and micro-credit should be made available at the request of the beneficiary communities. The project comprises five components, namely: i) rehabilitation of basic infrastructure, ii) development of income-generating activities, iii) capacity building, iv) resettlement of demobilized ex-servicemen and v) project management.

Project Objectives

The objective of the project is to contribute to the reconstruction of the country and poverty reduction. The specific objectives of the project are to: (i) rehabilitate and facilitate access to basic community infrastructure, (ii) increase the income of the poor and/or vulnerable groups as well as to integrate marginalized people and ex-servicemen into production networks, (iii) enhance the capacity of the State to gather, process, analyse and disseminate the statistical data required for social planning and also enhance the capacity of the intermediary organizations and grassroot communities.


The majority of the population of the Bissau, Tombali and Quinara regions should benefit from the project. In particular, several target groups have been identified by the Rehabilitation Project within the communities which have displayed the capacity and will to participate in the socioeconomic development of their region. The prime beneficiaries of the project are women, marginalized segments of the population, the 18 to 25-year old unemployed, the poorest economic operators in the traditional sectors of the economy, and demobilized ex-servicemen.
