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.

According to bank documents, this additional funding aims to support the Road Network Rehabilitation Project. This Project is designed because of the poor quality of infrastructure, especially road infrastructure, and related services is one of the major constraints on economic diversification in the Comoros. Indeed, economic activities in the country focus mainly on agricultural and tertiary sectors. The improvement of the national road network and, to a lesser extent, its extension, should contribute to the development of the tourism and fisheries sectors which have been identified as another potential growth pole for the national economy. By helping to improve the quality of services and reduce the cost of transport, this project will facilitate equitable access by the project area population to reliable road transport and basic social infrastructure. The project will also improve their incomes by helping to increase and develop production that would stem from trade facilitation. Similarly, the structures were designed to address and prevent the effects of climate change. The project will be implemented from December 2016 to December 2020. The components of this project are: (A) road works, comprising: (i) the rehabilitation of 47 km of road; (ii) protection against sea erosion; and (iv) raising the population's awareness; (B) support measures for women's empowerment; (C) institution building, using procurement and institutional reform specialists; and (D) support for project management and monitoring.

The project's sector goal is to improve the quality of road infrastructure in order to boost trade. Specifically, the project aims to improve: (i) the movement of goods and people; (ii) the service level; and (iii) access to basic services and the living conditions of the population of the project impact area.
