6.15 Lakes Tanganyika and Victoria: integrated transport strategy

This document is the recommended transport strategy for Lake Tanganyika and Lake Victoria. These two lakes form a central component of the central development corridor that links the coastal port of Dar es Salaam with Eastern Africa and the great lakes region. Currently neglected and under-performing, lake transportation could improve the region's competitiveness when appropriately integrated with other transport modes. This document should be read in conjunction with Volume II (background information and analysis).

The document first explains the need for a strategy, and details the current role and characteristics of inland waterways, ports and shipping services for both lakes. It goes on to analyse forecasted and potential freight and passenger volumes, and the regulatory environments and information available to, and needed by, mariners. Next the strategy is presented in short-, mediumand long-term horizons. Lastly, details regarding strategy implementation, including cost estimates, are provided.
