Reporte de la Situación
Le réseau routier à Madagascar est très limité. il pose généralement de nombreuses contraintes pour le transport de personnes et de marchandises dans certaines régions notamment celles affectées par le cyclone ENAWO. L'accès aux zones frappées par le cyclone reste difficile en raison des routes bloquées - par des arbres ou la montée des eaux - et des infrastructures endommagées, y compris les ponts et ferries, ce qui limite la capacité des organisations humanitaires à répondre aux besoins des populations affectées.
