Uganda - Upgrading of Kigumba-Masindi-Hoima-Kabwoya Road to Bituminous Standards - RAP Summary


Government of Uganda (GoU) through Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) is seeking funding from the African Development Bank (AfDB) to finance the upgrading of Kigumba - Bulima (69 km) and Bulima - Kabwoya (66 km) road section which is part of the 238 km “Kyenjojo–Hoima–Masindi–Kigumba” Road that is currently a gravel road originating from Kyenjojo Town through towns of Hoima and Masindi, ending at Kigumba. According to AfDB environmental screening guidelines, projects involving upgrading and rehabilitation of major roads, are classified “Category 1”. AfDB’s Involuntary Resettlement Policy (2003) requires a full Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) prepared if number of project affected persons (PAP) exceeds 200 people. This project affected 9005 property owners, hence this RAP study. The study was undertaken by Air Water Earth (AWE) on behalf of an engineering design consortium comprising Mott MacDonald and Kagga & Partners LTD.
