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 proposed project components are:

  1. Technical Studies: Conduct feasibility study, including ESIA, and detailed engineering design.
  2. Trade and Transport Facilitation and OSBP Management: Studies on modalities, including legal and institutional aspects, necessary for the smooth and efficient movement of goods and people and for all modes of transport services.
  3. Corridor Management: Studies in support of effectively managing the operations of the corridor as prescribed in the Treaty. This comprises studies on the legal, institutional and operational structures, as well as capacity building, necessary for instituting and operating the Abidjan-Lagos Corridor Development Authority (ALCoDA). The support is expected to also assist with operational expenditure, over a limited period, during the initial incubation period of ALCoDA. A detailed analysis on establishing ALCoDA, and the associated cost, will be finalised at appraisal. d)Technical Assistance Service to ECOWAS: Support to the Executing Agency on project management, PPP advisory, capacity building and project visibility (marketing) activities. Support to the PPP advisory/knowledge services will assist ECOWAS in scaling up private sector participation for investment. e)Financial Audit Services: Conduct financial audit services to ensure that funds are effectively utilized for the intended purposes.

  1. new alignment for the highway (as tier one) and existing alignment (as tier 2) with connectivity to sea ports and major trunk routes to landlocked countries;
  2. a PPP viability assessment for investment and operations of the corridor;
  3. detailed road safety audit; and,
  4. independent technical audits of the engineering design.  This include, but not limited to:

Component (2) will include, but not limited to:

  1. liberalisation and harmonisation of transportation and custom procedures for all users;
  2. systems for the effective operations of one-stop border post;

The objective of the study is therefore to identify project definition that will facilitate meeting the above development aspirations. Key objectives of the study is to appraise, but no limited to, the following: a.New alignment for the project road vs. existing alignment. b.All aspects for effective implementation and efficient operations of hard and soft infrastructure and systems. This will include, and not limited to, engineering, economic, financial, environmental, social, legal, institutional, etc. Interconnectivity with existing and future railway and port infrastructure

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.


*No further contact information provided at the time of disclosure*


The Independent Review Mechanism (IRM), which is administered by the Compliance Review and Mediation Unit (CRMU), is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an African Development Bank (AfDB)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may assist you by either seeking to address your problems by facilitating a dispute resolution dialogue between you and those implementing the project and/or investigating whether the AfDB complied with its policies to prevent environmental and social harms. You can submit a complaint electronically by emailing crmuinfo@afdb.org, b.kargougou@afdb.org, b.fall@afdb.org, and/or s.toure@afdb.org. You can learn more about the IRM and how to file a complaint at https://www.afdb.org/en/independent-review-mechanism/
