The proposed project is a support from the African Development Bank (NEPAD-IPPF Grant) towards the feasibility study and detailed engineering design for Mpulungu port Development project. Rehabilitation of Mpulungu Port is captured in the CSP (2011-2015) for Zambia as priority for intervention. Furthermore, the project will provide a fuel efficient transport mode along the regional corridors, since research shows that waterways transport is the most fuel efficient of all transport modes. It is articulated around four (4) components namely: (i) Feasibility Study and Detailed Engineering Design for Mpulungu Port Development; (ii) Technical Assistance for Procurement and Management of the Study; (iii) Financial Audit; (iv) Administration and Coordination Costs.
The project will increase the capacity and efficiency of both ports and consequently enhance the transportation through the regional corridors. Also, the project will improve the safety of navigation on the lake and cargo handling activities at the ports.
The project beneficiary is the Government of the Republic of Zambia though its Ministry of Transport and Communication. Enhanced transport on the lake will increase the number of jobs at and around the port (port operation, transaction, transportation etc.).
