    Promoter – Financial Intermediary




    The project consists of the upgrade of the Zambian section of the Great North Road (T2) between Mpika and the border with Tanzania in Nakonde. It further includes the rehabilitation of feeder roads in the Chinsali-Nakonde section, complementary initiatives in the project area and the provision of technical assistance.


    The project is a joint COMESA/EAC/SADC Aid for Trade Initiative, the primary aim of which is to lower transport cost along this key regional road corridor. It will contribute transforming centrally located Zambia from a land-locked to a land-linked country, while fostering continental integration and promoting inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction. It will help diversify the Zambian economy and unlock the country's economic potential. The upgrade of the Great North Road will also make the road more resilient to climate change and safer for road users and local communities.
