The main beneficiaries of the ERA Project are the people living in the areas of influence of the roads that will be rehabilitated and/or maintained in the Project’s operational areas. They will benefit from short term employment during construction of the road and from improved access to socio-economic facilities and services and related spin-off effects. Until now more than 5,237 workers employed by ERA trainee contractors during road works project in rural areas. 1,167 are women out of 5,237.

The direct beneficiaries are the contractors who will benefit from the training provided and the training institutions which will benefit from the strengthened capacity through training of trainers and development of certified training modules for contractor development.
