The programme to restructure the ECA, incorporates the transition from the Gisenyi-based MULPOC to the East Africa MULPOC which covers a greater number of countries and a larger geographical space. Two similar surveys conducted, separately, on lakes Kivu and Tanganyika, had indeed marked the commencement of ECA activities focused on projects which seek to establish an efficient transport system over these inland navigation waterways. These projects covered all inland water transport aspects namely, infrastructures, fleet, ship repairs and building facilities, transport operations and issues common to various development aspects such as, the strengthening of the supervisory authority's institutions, regulations, environmental protection and the development of human resources.
