Sustainable Port Development in the WIO Region

Odhiambo, John (2018)

There has been an increasing pace of large scale developments along coastlines ranging from railways, roads, Oil & Gas, mining activities and ports. This has been necessitated by the fast growing economies of coastal countries as well as those of the landlocked countries. Ports act as hubs of trade and intermodal systems where road, rail, pipelines and other transport modes meet for purposes of trade enhancement. They therefore form an integral part of current global economic development since seaborne trade actually accounts for about 90% of shipping worldwide.
