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. It is estimated that 25% of the delays at Nimule border point are caused by poor infrastructure and 75% is by poor facilitation. 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 system and adequate personnel training to deal with the expected increase in traffic.

What:

The project focuses on setting up the institutional and legal framework necessary for 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 for the development of an integrated border management platform and is supporting the lead agencies to implement the project on time and ensure quality.

Desired Results

A reduction in the total average time it takes to clear cargo at the Elegu/Nimule border post, which will in turn contribute to reducing trade costs in East Africa.
