This intervention is related to the rehabilitation of selected sections of the RN2 (OuroveniFoumbouni), RN21 (Domoni-Mremani), and RN32 (Wallah-Nioumachoua) Roads. It consists of the rehabilitation of 30.2 km of roads on the three islands of the Union of the Comoros, namely: 7.2 km on the Island of Grande Comore, 14 km on the Island of Anjouan, and 9 km on the Island of Mohéli. This project will open up the interior agricultural production regions, provide an efficient transport system for the supply of inputs, materials, and various products and above all for the transportation of agricultural produce to consumption areas. The Project also falls within the National Road Transport Master Plan (PDNTR 2015-2025) and the country's Transport Sector Policy (PST 2021- 2025). It has been structured into four (4) major components, namely: (A) Road works; (B) Support for women’s and youth economic empowerment; (C) Institutional support; and (D) Project management.
The project’s specific objective is to improve mobility and transport conditions for people and goods in the project area of the planned development of the RN2, RN21 and RN32 roads. At the sector level, the project aims to: (i) improve traffic flow and service levels on the road sections concerned; (ii) reduce transport costs and facilitate trade in the project area; and (iii) improve access to basic services and the living conditions of the project area population.
The direct project beneficiaries are: (i) people and entities working in the fisheries and agricultural sectors who are currently experiencing difficulties in transporting their products to consumption areas and/or in obtaining inputs; (ii) women and young people in the project area who will benefit from the activities under the "Support for women’s and youth economic empowerment" component to facilitate their social inclusion and improve their living conditions; (iii) the population in the various urban centres crossed by the road sections to be rehabilitated and in the regions surrounding the said urban centres.
