Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The Project objective is to provide inclusive and climate resilient rural connectivity in Northern Cote d'Ivoire.

The Project will involve the upgrade and climate proofing of strategic and non-strategic roads in the eleven regions of northern Cote d'Ivoire. It will provide climate resilient transport connectivity, improving access to schools, health services, and centers of economic activity in northern Cote d'Ivoire. The Project will also support the development of climate resilient rural socio-economic infrastructure, including key infrastructure in the agricultural logistics chain. Finally, the Project will build institutional capacity to foster the sustainability of the road sector, in areas such as road safety, road asset management, and road maintenance planning and execution. The Project will be co-financed with the World Bank, through the International Development Association.

The Project will comprise 5 components:
1. Inclusive and resilient rural connectivity infrastructure. This is the largest component of the Project. It will involve the construction and rehabilitation of climate resilient strategic roads, periodic and routine climate-resilient maintenance, and climate-resilience improvement of the non-strategic network;
2. Rural infrastructure, which will include consolidation of the agricultural logistics chain;
3. Support to road sector and capacity building. Institutional support and capacity building, to enhance institutional capacity for sustainability of the development objectives; and
4. Support to project management
5. Contingency emergency response component.

AIIB will jointly co-finance all of component 1, one sub-component of component 2, and all of component 3.

The AIIB has established the Accountability Mechanism for Project-Affected People (PPM). The PPM provides Òan opportunity for an independent and impartial review of submissions from Project-affected people who believe they have been or are likely to be adversely affected by AIIBÕs failure to implement the ESP in situations when their concerns cannot be addressed satisfactorily through Project level GRMs or AIIB Management processes.Ó Two or more project-affected people can file a complaint. Under the current AIIB policy, when the bank co-finances a project with another development bank, it may apply the other bank's standards. You can refer to the Project Summary Information document to find out which standards apply. You can learn more about the PPM and how to file a complaint at:

The complaint submission form can be accessed in Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Bengali, Chinese, English, Tagalog, Hindi, Nepali, Russian, Turkish, or Urdu. The submission form can be found at:
