According to the Bank’s website, the project consists of the rehabilitation of several sections of the road corridor from N'Djamena to the Cameroon border in the South. Once rehabilitated, this 596 km long corridor will enable Chad to have access to the nearest seaport located in Douala, Cameroon.
The project aims at addressing the transport and mobility constraints in Chad for both individuals and goods.
The proposed project will cover the rehabilitation and limited widening of several sections totalling some 280 km out of the 596 km of the road corridor from N'Djamena to Moundou, on the Cameroon border.
Overall, the project aims at improving transport conditions, including level of service, road safety and climate change resilience.
The project will improve the access of Chad, a landlocked country, to trade and economic activities thanks to the improvement of this main portal road link to the Douala seaport.
The project will contribute to most of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in particular to SDG 9 and SDG 13, respectively aiming at improving Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure and contributing to Climate Action. It will also contribute to other more general SDGs such as SDG 1 (reducing poverty) and SDG 8 (providing decent work and economic growth).

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EIB
The EIB Complaints Mechanism is designed to facilitate and handle complaints against the EIB by individuals, organizations or corporations affected by EIB activities. When exercising the right to lodge a complaint against the EIB, any member of the public has access to a two-tier procedure, one internal - the Complaints Mechanism Office - and one external - the European Ombudsman. A complaint can be lodged via a written communication addressed to the Secretary General of the EIB, via email to the dedicated email address: email@example.com, by completing the online complaint form available at the following address: http://www.eib.org/complaints/form via fax or delivered directly to the EIB Complaints Mechanism Division, any EIB local representation office or any EIB staff. For further details, check: http://www.eib.org/attachments/strategies/complaints_mechanism_policy_en.pdf
When dissatisfied with a complaint to the EIB Complaints Mechanism, citizens can then turn towards the European Ombudsman. A memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the EIB and the European Ombudsman establishes that citizens (even outside of the EU if the Ombudsman finds their complaint justified) can turn towards the Ombudsman on issues related to 'maladministration' by the EIB. Note that before going to the Ombudsman, an attempt must be made to resolve the case by contacting the EIB. In addition, the complaint must be made within two years of the date when the facts on which your complaint is based became known to you. You can write to the Ombudsman in any of the languages of the European Union.
