The development objective of Rural Mobility and Connectivity Project for Guinea is to improve and sustain the rural population's road access to markets and basic services. This project has four components. 1) The first component, Rural Roads and Small Community Facilities Rehabilitation, aims to include civil works for rehabilitation of about eight hundred kilometers of rural roads and four bridges in selected six prefectures. 2) The second component, Capacity Building for Road Maintenance and Road Safety, aims at providing capacity building for public and local authorities to tackle different issues, including business process improvement, human resources capacity building, road asset management, planning and financing capacity, road maintenance and road safety. 3) The third component, Project management, aims at ensuring that the project is efficiently managed and monitored, and that performance and outcomes are carefully tracked by the Project Implementation Unit (PIU) and the implementing agencies. 4) The fourth component, Contingent Emergency Response, can be activated should the need arise to redirect some of the project resources to respond to an emergency.

If you submit a complaint to the Inspection Panel, they may investigate to assess whether the World Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can contact the Inspection Panel or submit a complaint by emailing ipanel@worldbank.org.
