Central African Backbone Project

World Bank project summary and associated documentation of the Central African Backbone Project, The objective of the Central African Backbone (CAB) Program Project is to contribute to increase the geographical reach and usage of regional broadband network services and reduce their prices. There are four components to the project, the first component being enabling environment. This component aims to: (i) promote further regional market integration; (ii) strengthen the legal, regulatory, and institutional framework; (iii) support market liberalization; and (iv) promote the establishment of infrastructure that once in place is accessible to all service providers on open, transparent, competitive, and nondiscriminatory terms. The second component is the connectivity. This component will leverage the existing fiber-optic network laid along the Chad-Cameroon oil pipeline that will form the core CAB network and support the deployment of interconnected networks to form a regional network. The third component is the eGovernment and flagship Information and Communication Technology (ICT) applications. The program will seek to improve the Government efficiency by supporting development and rollout of selected eGovernment applications making use of the improved connectivity. Finally, the fourth component is the project management. This component will consist of support to finance management related issues at the project level. Depending on the specific implementation arrangements for each country, this component may include elements such as human resources support with management, procurement, financial management, Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E), internal and external audit, communications expertise, operating expenses, and equipments
