This road rehabilitation project will take place in the Central African Republic (CAR). CAR is a highly fragile country with a history of recurrent conflict, the most recent of which took place in 2013 between multiple armed groups. The violence that followed the 2013 crisis greatly damaged public assets and infrastructure, disrupted service delivery, and further weakened the social fabric, and exacerbated people’s poverty and vulnerability to shocks.

Improving a critical mass of rural road connectivity links in agricultural production basins could unlock some of the unrealized potential of agriculture in CAR. The Northeast Basin has been prioritized because of its extreme isolation, with a particular focus on the main access route of this region (Kaga-Bandoro-Ndele-Birao), totaling approximately 680 km. This road is part of a regional corridor linking CAR to Sudan.

The Government of the Central African Republic (CAR) has secured support and funding from the World Bank to implement this road rehabilitation project. The Government of the Central African Republic, represented by the Ministry of Public Works and Road Maintenance (MTPER) has designated UNOPS for the design and implementation of Phase 1 of the Rural Connectivity Project, specifically in the area / North-Eastern basin of the Central African Republic for emergency works on the reopening of the Ndélé-Birao National Road No. 8 section and the consolidation of the same road of the Kaga Bandoro-Mbrès-Ndélé section. This project is referred to as the North East Rural Connectivity Project
