Construction of Geeldoh Bridge to Facilitate Humanitarian and Trade Access to Nogob/Fik Zone

Countries: Ethiopia | Operations ID: 200752 | Operations type: Special Operation (SO)

This operation has been modified as per budget revision 2 (see below)

As part of operations, WFP is providing food aid in the Somali Region of Ethiopia.  Access to the Woredas of Lagahida and Salahad in the Nogob (Fik) Zone of this area is problematic.  Under the current transportation model, food is dispatched from either Jijiga or Dire Dawa and can take in excess of 4 days to reach the Woredas. This can increase by two-three times in the rainy season. To improve food security and WFP transportation efficiencies, it is proposed to construct a bridge across the Wabe-Shebele River
