Dominica: increasing resilience of the transport network

After tropical storm Erika in August 2015, the government of Dominica set out to increase the transport network resilience. This includes the rehabilitation of the Loubiere to Bagatelle Road. Within this project, IMC is providing environmental, social, gender, economic and road safety inputs.

Tropical Storm Erika struck Dominica in August 2015, generating floods and mudslides that damaged infrastructure, including the main road network.

In response, the government of Dominica is looking to create a more resilient transport network, the scope of which covers the rehabilitation of the 20km Loubiere to Bagatelle Road (LBR).

The LBR provided access for 14% of Dominica’s population but was damaged and parts of it undermined as a result of flooding and rock fall.

IMC is providing environmental, social, gender, economic and road safety aspects of the Options Report of the LBR rehabilitation. The scope of this includes climate vulnerabilities assessment, social assessments, stakeholder and gender analysis plan, environmental and social management plan, extreme weather management plan and an economic appraisal.
