With increased economic integration in the Community, the lake transport is expected to handle higher volumes of cargo and passengers; and with the liberalization of the sector, the following areas will increasingly require investment…

  • Building, operating and maintaining wagon vessels, ferries, boats, cruise ships and other means of water transport.
  • Investment in livestock transport to boost trade in livestock between the Partner States; Building and maintaining ports and landing beaches.
  • Involvement of private sector investors in the provision of ports, infrastructure and facilities.
  • Privatising ports' service to ensure full utilisation of the facilities.
  • Developing capacity in prevention and control of spills in the harbours and port areas; Provision of water safety measures.
  • Maintenance of navigational aids and other equipment including carrying out nautical cartography.
