Zambia - Rehabilitation of Serenje to Mpika road - ESIA Summary (Updated)
The Serenje–Mpika Road forms a part of the Zambian Great North Road (T2) that is a section of international routes i.e. the Trans-Africa Highway and the North-South Corridor (NSC) which is a joint COMESA/East African Community/South African Development Corporation (COMESA/EAC/SADC) Aid for Trade initiative. Its primary aim is to reduce the time, and cost of transport along this priority Corridor which links the port of Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania to the Copper-belt (Southern DR Congo and Northern Zambia) and connects to the southern ports of South Africa specifically the port of Durban. The Corridor system, with its spurs, services eight (8) countries -Tanzania, DR Congo, Zambia, Malawi, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and South Africa. The project has been endorsed by the SADC/EAC/COMESA Tripartite that aims to improve the regional transport infrastructure with a view to supporting economic and social development programs along the Trans-Africa Highway/North-South Corridor.
