This intervention concerns the Construction of the Ring Road as part of the third phase of the Transport Sector Support Programme. It aims to contribute to improving the movement of goods and people. This will strengthen the foundations for strong and sustainable growth by promoting trade at the national level and with neighbouring Nigeria. The Ring-Road has a total length of approximately 365 km. It forms a loop of Bamenda-BambuiNdop-Babessi-Kumbo-Nkambe-Misaje-Nyos-Wum-Bafut-Bamenda. It crosses five of the seven departments of the Northwest Region and includes several connections to the Nigerian border, notably from Misaje. The programme is structured around the four components, namely (i) road works; (ii) related facilities and support for women and youth; (iii) institutional support; and (iv) programme management and coordination.
The programme objective is to improve the level of service of the Ring Road and the living conditions of the population in the programme impact area.
The operation's direct beneficiaries are the people living in the PIA and its main social groups. Other beneficiaries include various users of the Ring Road (carriers, motorcyclists, pedestrians, etc.), businesses and service providers who will be mobilised to ensure its implementation, as well as technical services and other administrative entities in the North-West Region.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF AfDB
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 email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and/or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can learn more about the IRM and how to file a complaint at https://www.afdb.org/en/independent-review-mechanism/.
