Project General Description

The Cyclones Eline, Gloria and Hudah Damage Repairs Project aims to open up four provinces of Madagascar (Anstiranana, Majunga, Tuelar and Fiananaransto) in order to restore agricultural activities and access to social services. It’s initiated because of the great human and material damage caused by the successive passages of these cataclysms. In view of the geographical dispersion of the regions affected, the scale of the damage and the difficulties of communication, the Government's means of intervention remain insufficient. The project comprises five (05) main components, namely: 1) repair work on 1767 km of classified network roads; 2) procurement and installation of 270 m of modular bridges; 3) repair works on the 153 km long south railway line; 4) inspection and monitoring of works; and 5) project auditing.

Project Objectives

The sector goal is the opening up of four provinces of Madagascar in order to restore agricultural activities and access to social services (schools and health centres). The project objective is to reestablish traffic on 1767 km of roads and 153 km of railway in order to restore the level of services prior to the outbreaks of the cyclones.


The beneficiaries of the project are the populations of the four (04) provinces concerned, namely: Antsiranana, Majunga, Tuélar and Fianaransto. These populations are estimated at 7.5 million inhabitants, that is 50% of the country, 80% of whom live in the rural area. They are among the poorest in the country with an average household income of about US$ 540, lower than the national average (US$ 639).
