Despite its vast natural resource potential, the country suffered a long period of economic slump after independence.To remedy this, the Government embarked on a series of economic and financial recovery programmes and,more recently,the implementation of the National Rural Infrastructure Programme (PNIR-1), which was the first attempt at defining a rural infrastructure strategy and developing a global approach in this area.Preparation of the second phase of the PNIR, to which this project is related, began in 1998 with the support of the World Bank. In this regard, broad consultations were held among the various population groups, rural development communities (CRDs), the civil society and the administration. Feeder roads, high ways and bridges were identified as the main priorities for combating poverty among the population.
