The project will comprise construction of the section Kitale - Morpus of the South Sudan Link Road in Kenya. This will be accompanied by measures to ensure project sustainability such as installation of axle load control facilities to prevent overloading and a long-term maintenance contract with the private sector. Apart from road rehabilitation the project will feature activities to promote road safety and economic development/social service delivery as well as measures to mitigate possible negative social and environmental impacts. A TA component will enhance the Kenya National Highways Authority’s (KeNHA) capacity to manage and monitor resettlement activities in its entire portfolio according to international standards.
This TA will finance (i) the development of a manual for KeNHA’s management and monitoring of resettlement activities according to international standards, (ii) the development and implementation of an IT-based information system to monitor resettlement activities, and (iii) the training for KeNHA staff.
