UPGRADING PERUVIAN MOUNTAIN TRACKS PUTS PEOPLE FIRST

The World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank have given the go-ahead to a $300 million Rural Roads Rehabilitation and Maintenance Project for Peru. The project includes several innovative elements which will better target lower income beneficiaries and improve its long term environmental impact, including significant funds for upgrading village-level footpaths and tracks that are used primarily by pedestrians and human and animal-powered vehicles. The overall project focuses on secondary feeder roads that provide key links to the primary road system, and the inclusion of local tracks in the project provides important recognition that non-motorized transport plays a key role in an integrated transportation system.
