Présentation du projet
Commencing in November 2013 the Feeder Roads Construction, Operation and Maintenance to connect Agriculture to Business (FROMA2B) Programme is a £50 million feeder roads programme that will build rural feeder roads and invest in state level capacity building and maintenance over a period of five years. The programme focus is on the states of Northern Bahr-el Ghazal, Western Bahr-el Ghazal and Warrap. This complements DFID’s existing livelihoods programmes in the same area, namely BRACE and UFSLM, which rely on co-ordinated investments in the feeder road network to deliver their food security targets. These programmes were designed to as linked development interventions to to improve production and markets and ultimately food security through the development of value chains. They represent DFID South Sudan’s main programmes designed to contribute to the achievement of food security targets in a sustainable manner. Feeder roads investments would also assist livelihoods programmes funded by others in the Greater Bahr El Ghazal area, notably, significant investments being funded by the European Union and Canada.

The FROMA2B programme will build and maintain the underlying infrastructure that will enable increased access to markets for communities and increased access to basic services. It is envisaged as an anchor intervention in the Greater Bahr el Ghazal region, providing corridors of economic and social opportunity. The programme will also increase the reach of government and government services and thus contribute to stabilisation efforts.
