Conduct Assessment & Implement a Capacity Development Program for the 3 Major Intermodal Corridors of Ghana, Kenya and Liberia

This project is an outgrowth of the DOT sponsored U.S.-Africa AGOA Transportation and Trade Forum and seeks to improve AGOA-related trade by facilitating capacity building at major gateways on the west, east and southern coasts of Africa. Currently over 99% of AGOA trade is carried by water transportation necessitating an efficient, integrated, and intermodal transportation system if the movement of AGOA-related trade is to improve. The project is divided into three phases, and covers the three major trading gateways for the Africa continent. The project is a systematic approach to transportation on the continent and assesses port infrastructure and the delivery system to the ports as critical elements in increasing efficiency. Human capacity building will be evaluated and intermodal courses will be generated to address identified deficiencies. The project is to be carried out in three phases and completed within 9 months from the agreed date of implementation.
