EIA for deep sea port in Benin
In June 2015, an NCEA working group visited Benin to advise about the scope for an EIA for a deep sea port. The port will be located 10 km east of Cotonou. It will form a key element of the infrastructure network that connects west African countries to the rest of the world. During its visit, the NCEA working group informally inspected the existing port of Cotonou upon invitation by the port authorities. It also presented the case of Rotterdam port at a seminar about sustainable port development.
