Why this project?

The Elegu/Nimule border crossing is currently characterised by excessive documentation requirements which involves multiple parties and different types of documents and data elements with avoidable repetitions. Given that road transport will be the most suitable option for South Sudan for the next 10 years and the confirmation by the government of Uganda that the road from Gulu to Nimule will be completed by early 2015, there is need to develop an Integrated Border Management and adequate personnel training to deal with the expected increase in motorized and human traffic.

What:

The project focuses on setting up the institutional and legal framework necessary for increased collaboration in border management at inter-agency and bilateral levels, reviewing and implementing one stop border post procedures, training border agency officials, and installing ICT networks, hardware, furniture and equipment.

How:

TMEA is providing funding and technical support to facilitate implementation of integrated border management systems at Taveta border post jointly with the border agencies.

Desired Results

A reduction in the total average time it takes to clear cargo at the Elegu/Nimule border by 30 per cent, which will in turn contribute to reducing transport costs and increase in intra-regional and foreign trade in the East Africa.
