Cameroon’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MINADER) has adopted the World Bank’s market-driven approach in contracting companies for construction of rural roads nationwide.

The new method known in it’s French accronym as “Contrats d’entretien et de réhabilitation par objectifs qualifiés (CEROQ)” requires the Minister of Agriculture to define transportation needs (type of road and budget) of every agro zone and submit to engineers who would determine the techniques and quality of material for construction.
Given that PIDMA has earmarked the rehabilitation of about 190km roads in the Center, Littoral, North West, South and West regions, the institution opted to use the new method on grounds that it is less costly both in time and financial terms.

It was in this regard, that the institution organized a workshop in Mbalmayo from August 6 to 8, 2018 to drill stakeholders on the new method in a bid to facilitate its implementation.

Opening the workshop, the Secretary General of MINADER, Patrice Nna Mvondo said the technique is being introduced at the right time as government is aiming at rationalizing financial resources.
