Land-locked countries of Eastern and Central Africa namely: Burundi, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda are connected to two main Indian Ocean ports of Mombasa in Kenya and Dar-es Salaam in Tanzania. There are two distinct transport corridors that connect the two ports to the land locked countries in the sub-region. The Northern corridor connects Mombasa to Rwanda, Burundi, and eastern DRC via Uganda, whereas the Central corridor connects the same countries via Tanzania. Both corridors fall within the geographical coverage of Eastern Africa Sub-regional Development Center (EASRDC). The Mombasa meeting was mainly concerned with transit traffic passing through the Northern Corridor. This corridor has a formal transit transport agreement known as Northern Corridor Transit Transport Agreement, which was signed, by the five member States in 1985.
