The present Upgrading Studies Project contributes to the development of the Kampala-Juba-Addis Ababa-Djibouti Transport Corridor which aims to enhance regional connectivity, reduce transport costs, improve access to local, regional and international markets and boost regional trade, promote tourism, foster regional cooperation and integration, and improve socioeconomic opportunities for the people living in the Horn of Africa. The project components include (1) a feasibility study, environment and social impact assessment and detailed engineering design of the missing link Kapoeta-Raad road (270 km) in South Sudan; (2) Trade and Transport Facilitation Study which involves: (i) Soft infrastructure issues, (ii) One-Stop Border Posts (OSBPs) feasibility study, architectural and detailed engineering designs, and preparation of tender documents; and (3) Project Management which includes: (i) Technical Assistance for Project Coordination to IGAD; and (ii) Transport Engineering to the Ministry of Transport, Roads and Bridges, in South Sudan.

Project Objectives

The Project's objectives are to: (1) open an alternative seaport access for South Sudan and Uganda; (2) improve the condition of the main road to access the Djibouti Port for Ethiopia; (2) develop road transport infrastructure connecting Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia and Djibouti, and improve regional connectivity; and (3) provide sustainable road access and quality of transport services for the communities in the zone of influence to markets and social services, and contribute to the reduction of poverty and promote good governance, peace and security.


Main beneficiaries are cross-border traders and communities of the four countries in the zone of influence and the region at large. The Corridor project provides better socio-economic opportunities and thus contributes to poverty reduction as well as promotes good governance, peace and security.
