scourges are held with the ministries concerned (Ministry of Social Affairs, Ministry of Public Health), and actors of the civil society (CSOs and NGOs).In terms of social development of the disadvanta- ged areas, the authorities proceed to the fulfil- ment of a number of projects of community inte- rest through the HLI approach (High Labor Intensity) of the precarious areas in towns, the paving of access roads and drinking water sup- ply systems; the carrying out of a study on the social development of Yaounde and Douala, and a programming study to improve the access to basic services in some sub-structured areas.On management and socioeconomic integration of troubled young people, more than 500 youths have been trained in urban sector trades (produc- tion of local building materials, manufacturing and installation of cobblestones, peri-urban agri- culture, urban horticulture, cable Tv, etc.) the Government provides common materials and equipment to support socioeconomic integration of the young trained people.ACCESS TO BASIC URBAN SERVICESAccess to basic urban services is high up among the strategies identified by the Growth and Employment Strategy Paper (GESP). In practical terms, the rate of access to infrastructures and basic services in Cameroon remains unsatisfactory.The improvement of access to urban services consists in making accessible urban services to all, by improving management of infrastructuresand urban services and life environment in poor areas, whereas the improvement of access to basic social services aims at making basic social services accessible to all, by creating conditions of improving accessibility and quality of health care, fight against HIV/AIDS and malaria, pre- vention of drug addiction and petty crime, nutri- tion and promotion of basic education.TRANSPORT: DEVELOPING THE INFRASTRUCTURESIn 2014, the development of urban transport infrastructures focused on: The maintenance of surfaced roads in Ebolowa, Yaoundé, Okola, Edea, Ngaoundere and Garoua-Boulaï; the maintenance of dirt roads with the Road Fund financing, in seven cities (Kumbo, Santa Balikumbat, Ngaoundere, Wum, Misage and Banbangté); the maintenance of the dirt roads within the context of decentralization in 10 towns over a linear length of 43.8 km; the rehabilitation of public highways in Yaounde and Bamenda over a linear length of 18.4 km as part of the project for the development of urban areas and water supply; the rehabilitation and making of the loop Shell Nsimeyong Biyem Assi-hospital- Rond point Express-Rond point Damase over a linear length of 7.9 km; the rehabilitation of sur- faced roads in the cities of Yaounde, Muyuka and Bangangté over a linear length of 8.5 km as part of an emergence response; the construction of the access road to the newly built area of Olembé 2.5km long and the Eastern urban motorway of Yaounde, 4 km long.Offer better accesses to the urban servicesLES ATOUTS ECONOMIQUES DU CAMEROUN195
