  • The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), a regional grouping with 15 Member States in West Africa (three landlocked and one island) with a population of about 300million with an annual economic growth rate of 6%. The ECO WAS Commission is one of the eight Regional Economic Communities (RECs) supporting the African Union to coordinate the implementation of continental and regional integration and development programmes in West Africa.

    Consultant for the Feasibility Study on Preparation of ECOWAS Maritime Port Masterplan

     

    Location: West Africa
    Client: ECOWAS Commission
    Type: Expression of Interest (EOI)

    Background
    A region's ability to unleash its economic potential is closely linked to the efficiency of its transport system. Transport is also an integral part of almost all daily subsistence and social activities. Without well-defined and effective transport policies and strategies, poor people will not be able to accumulate enough human, physical, financial, and social assets to get ahead. Transport has, therefore, to be an integral part of a country's poverty reduction strategy.

    It has been recognized that maritime transport is a key catalyst to the achievement of the ECOWAS Commission's people-centered Regional Integration vision that is capable of stimulating economic growth and eradicating poverty in the region. It is in this regard that Article 32 of the ECO WAS revised Treaty of 1993 seeks the development of transport infrastructure and policies within Member States to promote free movement of persons, goods and services within the Community.

    The fierce competition among the regional ports in West Africa has led to the multi-loop system of alliance with smaller vessels than running very larger vessels on a few loops. The bargaining power of shippers that ensures the principle of ship, follow cargo in the liner service network becoming customer oriented differentiation exercise, with less transshipment and more direct ship calls based on traffic density and overall logistic chain efficiency for the shipper. This is a challenge for future expansion of West African regional ports unless certain policy options are vigorously pursued. This is especially true for landlocked countries where transit traffic is expected to increase tenfold in the next 30 years.

    It is in this perspective that the ECOWAS Commission, through its Infrastructure Projects Preparation and Development Unit (PPDU), Lome, Toge is desirous to undertake a study to prepare a Maritime Port Masterplan for the West African Region.
