The IPSEA project seeks to boost the safety and efficiency of ports in handling, storing and moving cargo. Five ports have been selected to participate in a bid to alleviate Africa’s logistical bottlenecks: Tema (Ghana), Pointe Noire (Congo-Brazzaville), Lomé (Togo), Abidjan (Cote d’Ivoire) and Douala (Cameroon). ;-)

Regarding safety, the objective is to reduce the rates of accidents and incidents during port operations. This covers the handling and storage of dangerous goods in ship-to-shore and shore-to-ship transfers, as well as port-to-truck and port-to-rail operations. The project will look at areas for improvement in existing incident and accident reporting systems and the functioning of port authorities’ safety departments.

On efficiency, the program seeks to develop a sustainable improvement in port performance and logistics, including handling, documentation and inspection procedures. Officials will receive training for managing concessions, procurement and privatization.

Finally, the program will provide technical assistance to develop port master plans that are integrated with city planning to ease traffic congestion in and around harbours.
