• A preliminary masterplan to allow defining in the medium term the main orientations for the development of the main targeted nodal poles of the corridor, mainly focused on the development of public and collective infrastructures and land for agriculture, forestry and animal husbandry.

This plan should include a five year action plan and a basic preliminary design (APS) of the main public and collective priority infrastructures as well as mitigation actions of environmental and social impact;
• The detailed preliminary designs of the main public and collective priority infrastructures and of the mitigation measures to be funded by the project and identified and proposed in the plan to develop the targeted sectors in the nodal poles and estimate the cost of the drawn up detailed preliminary design; and tender documents for the main works contracts (agricultural feeder roads, small hydroelectric dams, wholesale markets, distribution centres for agricultural products).
