Rural Road Construction Strategy - Main Users / Purpose
|Development agencies, government authorities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), community-based organizations (CBOs)
|The target population of labour-intensive rural road construction measures are generally poor households who suffer from food insecurity and a lack of income opportunities, both chronic and in the context of complex emergencies. The road construction process itself provides them with short-term employment. In the long-term improved accessibility promotes the creation of additional social and productive assets as well as access to markets within the target areas. Because the construction process is largely implemented by the community-based organisations (CBOs) of the target population, the Rural Road Construction Strategy supports self-help capacities and socio-economic empowerment of the beneficiaries. Ethnically and socially marginalised groups can especially benefit, when they are appropriately addressed by a socially inclusive approach. In detail, objectives of the strategy are as follows:
