The project consists of the rehabilitation of several sections of the road corridor from N'Djamena to the Cameroon border in the South. Once rehabilitated, this 596 km long corridor will enable Chad to have access to the nearest seaport located in Douala, Cameroon.
The project aims at addressing the transport and mobility constraints in Chad for both individuals and goods. The proposed project will cover the rehabilitation and limited widening of several sections totalling some 280 km out of the 596 km of the road corridor from N'Djamena to Moundou, on the Cameroon border. Overall, the project aims at improving transport conditions, including level of service, road safety and climate change resilience. The project will improve the access of Chad, a landlocked country, to trade and economic activities thanks to the improvement of this main portal road link to the Douala seaport. The project will contribute to most of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in particular to SDG 9 and SDG 13, respectively aiming at improving Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure and contributing to Climate Action. It will also contribute to other more general SDGs such as SDG 1 (reducing poverty) and SDG 8 (providing decent work and economic growth).

If located within the EU, the project would fall under Annex II of Directive 2014/52/EU amending the EIA Directive 2011/92/EU and would therefore be subject to screening by the competent authority to determine whether an environmental impact assessment (EIA) was required. The project is, in any case, categorised as requiring a full EIA under applicable domestic legislation, LOI Nº014/PR/98 "définissant les principes généraux de la protection de l'environnement." Therefore, an EIA procedure, in accordance with applicable standards, needs to be undertaken and submitted to the Competent Authority (Le Haut Comité National pour l'Environnement) for approval. The Bank will check the environmental and social aspects during appraisal and verify that the Promoter has complied with the relevant EU principles and the EIB Environmental and Social Standards.
