Kalundu Port is the main entry point for trade into the r Kivus’s region. The Port is threatened by sedimentation at the port entrance. The sand bank has raised to the point where vessels accessing the port run a high risk of grounding. This also means that larger ships cannot access the port. The removal of the sand bank through dredging at the port is therefore necessary for its continued ability to service larger vessels. Furthermore, the project will undertake to modernise ageing infrastructure (warehouses, pavement, fencing etc.).
