                                                  Lake Kivu is one of three known exploding lakes; in Lake Kivu's case,
                                                  methane and carbon dioxide dissolved in the water would become
                                                  separated and represent a considerable risk due to volcanic activity. The
                                                  risk from a possible Lake Kivu overturn would be catastrophic.

                                                  It is also possible that the lake could spawn lake tsunamis as gas

1.2.2.     Calamities and Seasonal Affects
                              Seasonal affects on transport (economic, social, climate…)
            Transport                                 Comments                            From <month> to <month>
                                  Due to lack of maintenance of roads, vastness
                                  of country, and lack of government funding
                                  most primary roads are in greaqt nned of
                                                                                      All year around due to lack of
                                  rehabilitation at many points.
Primary Road Transport                                                                maintenance of roads and bridges.
                                  Another factor is the nonexistence of axle road
                                                                                      During the dry and wet seasons
                                  limitations; this affects roads especially during
                                  rainy seasons. Check Road Assessment and
                                  maps included for further details.
Secondary Road Transport          Same as above                                       Same as above

                                  Assessment in LCA for further details               the wet season
Air Transport                     No                                                  N/A
Waterways Transport               Yes                                                 During the wet season

Seasons of the year:
   •   North of Equator:              Wet season from April to October; dry season from December to February
   •   South of Equator:              Wet season from November to March; dry season from April to October

The seasonal effects on road transport:
    •  During the wet season, roads are extremely muddy and often not passable. Trips may take more time normal.
    •  During the wet season there is usually a big increase of breakdowns in trucks and thus an increase on spare
       parts are required. Furthermore, due to struggle to pass muddy roads, movement of cargo may increase and
       cause damage such as tear and/or leakage of goods.
    •  During the dry season, roads may become very sandy thus sometimes impassable, making heavy cargo loads
       difficult to be transported. Trucks are often stranded until piles of sand are cleared.

The seasonal effects on river transport:
    •  The draft of vessels may change and it is difficult to load barges to their full loading capacity.
    •  The transport rates also increase during this period
    •  Some of the rivers require special type of barges and at times are not navigable. The rainy season is the
       difficult period for sending food to different sites.

1.2.3.     Capacities to Respond to Emergencies
    •      There are no military assets currently available in DRC. The use of military and/or civil defense assets are not
           currently applied in ongoing relief operations.

      A) Exemption Regular Regime (Non-Emergency Response):

Please check “Import Procedures for Relief Commodities” (Annex 4 of LCA) and “Guide des Importations en République
Démocratique du Congo” (Annex 12 / In French) for further details and explanations.

National Customs Legislation and Regime
•     UN agencies have a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the government which exempts UN from taxes on
      all imports.
•     The forwarding agent fills in the official tax exemption form (Fiche IE), and takes it to be registered at OFIDA (Office
      des Douanes et Assises), the official DRC customs authority.
•     The form must be accompanied by a Bill of Lading, an Insurance Certificate, an Invoice, a gift certificate, a packing
      list, and a Certificate of Origin.
•     Once OFIDA has approved and stamped the IE form, the forwarding agent gives all the documents back to WFP
      who then submits them to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs with a “Note Verbale”.
•     The Ministry signs the tax exemption and the documents are then sent to the point of entry.
•     At the point of entry, the documents are then stamped successively by different OFIDA departments: the Receiver
      (Receveur), the Controller (Vérificateur), and the Customs Police (Brigade Douanière).
•     All goods entering DRC are inspected by the state owned inspection company, OCC (Office Congolais de Contrôle).
•     The documents required by the OCC are: Bill of Lading or Waybill, Packing list and Certificate of Origin).
•     As part of the state inspection, samples are taken of food and medicines upon arrival. These samples are analysed
      at a cost of US$30 per test.

Once these steps are completed, including for shipments payment by the forwarding agent to ONATRA - the state
handling agent, the cargo is then released by the customs brigade of OFID.

     D) Transit Regime
This section should contain information on the usual practices (customs procedure chosen – e.g. import/export or
bonded transit) for humanitarian aid commodities which are destined for another country. Give an explanation and the
details on the transit regime, escort requirements (if it is required, cost, etc.), transport bond, bonded warehouses
situation, etc.

Transit Regime
There are 4 different transit regimes in DRC.

        •   Customs Declaration for goods paying duties and taxes
        •   Customs declaration for goods partially or totally exempted of paying duties and taxes
        •   Customs Declaration to transfer goods from ports, airports, international borders to bonded yard or warehouse
        •   Transit Declaration to transfer goods from a border (port/ airport/ border) to another country (i.e. Matadi
            Maritime Port – Kinshasa Dry Port – across the Congo River to Brazzaville (Rep. of Congo).

Escorts are compulsory for all bonded goods transferred from borders, ports, airports to destination where goods will
finally be custom’s cleared.

Transporters (Trucking Companies/ Air transporters) entrusted to do such transfers, must have a special licence
obtained from the Customs authorities called (TRD or Transport sous douane).

Bonded warehouses can be either public (managed by customs authorities) or private (with a compulsory customs
presence). In general largest freight forwarding companies own their private bonded warehouses and of bonded yards.

Private Companies also have bonded warehouse to facilitate procedures for their own business (i.e. Automobile
Dealers).

2. Logistics Infrastructure
2.1. Port Assessment

There are different types of ports in DRC:
    •   Maritime Ports (of Matadi, Boma and Moanda/Banana)
    •   River Ports
    •   Lake ports

     2.1.1.      Matadi Port

2.1.1.1. Port Overview
The Port of Matadi is the only major inter land deepwater sea port in the DRC. It is located on the Congo River estuary,
at about 80 nautical miles from its mouth in the Atlantic Ocean. It is a very narrow strip of land that controls the lower
Congo River and is the only outlet to South Atlantic Ocean.

The Port of Matadi is being called by an average of 30 vessels per month of a medium capacity size and the draft
limitation on approaching and during berthing should not exceed 22 feet

Administratively, Matadi Port is located in the capital (chef de lieu) of the Bas Congo province. The districts of Bas
Congo province are Bas Fleuve, Cataractes and Lukaya.

The port is managed by ONATRA (Office of National Transport). ONATRA works under the authority of the Ministry of
Transport and Communication. The maritime port’s department is the operational department of ONATRA in dealing
with:
     1) The exploitation and management of the 3 Congolese maritime ports that are Matadi, Boma and Banana.
     2) The exploitation of the river traffic on the maritime river navigation (Matadi – Boma – Moanda/Banana).

Stevedoring is done by ONATRA and private stevedoring is not permitted except the 2 flour mills that handle their own
cargo. However, the Port of Matadi is actually in an incredibly worn out condition in terms of facilities and port
equipment. Almost all of the rail mounted shore cranes are not operational and the remaining few functional are in
extreme fragile condition. Therefore, Vessels wishing to call the port should carry their own cargo gears. The port offers
stevedoring in 3 shifts, 24 hours a day (from 6:30am to 2:30pm, from 2:30pm to 10:30pm, and from 10:30pm to 6:30am).

Matadi port is the most important maritime port of DRC with 90% maritime traffic without including the oil – tanker. It has
a potential capacity of handling 2,500,000 Metric tonnes of cargo per year. Matadi port is the most important port in
terms of activities.

Matadi Port is currently under pressure to upgrade their installations according to ISPS code (i.e. separation of between
public access area and berthing zone) in order to be kept by OMI among the Port classification.
The port is connected with Kinshasa by railroad. It was handling an average of 1.2 million tonnes of cargo a year in the
late 1970’s and has now reached almost 2 million tonnes/cargo per year. Efforts to improve river transport apparently
have not progressed further in the 1970’s.
Matadi port is the terminal of the railway Kinshasa – Matadi (CFMK – Chemin de Fer Matadi – Kinshasa) 366 kms in
length that links the two towns.
The port is 1,610 m long and equipped with 10 quays, this may allow “parking” of ten big ships at the same moment.
Sub-divisions of the quays and lengths of each pier are as follows:

a)      Matadi Quay: Includes pier 1 to 4 for general cargo vessels. This section is no longer in use due to its critically
        bad condition. There are talks of renovations underway, but nothing has been done since.
•       Pier 1:            149 meters
•       Pier 2:            161 meters
•       Pier 3:            155 meters
•       Pier 4:            158 meters

b)      Fuka Fuka Quay: Piers 5 to 7 for container vessels
•       Pier 5:          156 meters
•       Pier 6:          176 meters
•       Pier 7:          188 meters

c)      Kala Kala Quay: Includes pier 8 to 10 for mixed cargo vessels. Quay no. 9 is exclusively reserved for bulk
        carriers. It is used by MIDEMA AND MINO-CONGO, the two major flour mills in DRC.
•       Pier 8:               149 meters
•       Pier 9:               167 meters
•       Pier 10:              143 meters

                                                             20
d)    Venise quay or Kenge: 530 meters; upstream reserved to passengers traffic, but no longer in use.

e)    Ango Ango quay: 120 meters; located at seven kilometers downstream of the port. This special quay is built and
      equipped for dangerous merchandise (guns and explosives).

The surrounding terrain feature at Matadi has limited the draft of vessels. Permissible draft for navigating the Congo
River varies from time to time ranging between 5.8 – 6.0 meters. There are times when the draft on the river Congo has
been reduced to 5.8 meters and should be checked with the port authority in advance.

During the rainy season the draft decreases and reaches from 5.8 – 6.0 meters. This reduction is due to the increase of
sand in Mateba Island, which is on the way through Matadi port. The water reach between Matadi and Banana is under
the control of “Regie des Voies Maritimes (RMV)” which ensure the maintenance and piloting of the ships in both sides.
RVM is responsible for maintaining the river depths, which used to be up to 8.6m in the past and is also responsible for
maintenance of navigational leading lights and tugging.
However due to lack of fuel and spare parts for the dredgers, the draft on the river Congo could not be maintained. The
leading lights also have been out of order for the last 10 years, thus only daylight navigation is allowed.

Matadi Port has 3 working shifts which are as follows:
    •   From 06:30 am to 14:00 pm
    •   From 14:30 pm to 22:30 pm
    •   From 22:30 pm to 06:30 am
    •   Port operates 24/24 hrs (including weekends and bank holidays)

Other useful information:
    •   Vessels up to 195 m can be accommodated
    •   Vessel proceeding up the river must at least have a speed knot of 11 knots for Matadi
    •   ONATRA usually advises vessels to use good mooring lines needed due to strong river current
    •   Navigation by night is not allowed according to Congo river regulations
    •   On dry season, the chief pilot of ONATRA usually advises to load vessels at 6.50m
    •   Upon Arrival vessel may be required to proceed to anchor on arrival at the landfall buoy at river.
    •   Entrance is Named “Stella Buoy” (Longitude 12degrees, 22” 53,97” East and Latitude 06’02’04,74 South)

    IN April 2008 the DRC Government recently gave management of port to a company called PROGOSA. This Spanish
    company has for mission to audit ONATRA during a period of 24 months starting June 2008. This audit is aimed to
    improve the management skills of ONATRA, the information system/network flow, and prepare the restructuring of
    ONATRA. The mission is conducted in a joint venture with a French company called SISTRA (a branch of SNCF) and
    the Audit Company called PRICE WATERHOUSE. It is believed that the Port of Matadi will be privatized for better
    management in future years. For further information pleased refer to website: http://www.progosa.com

2.1.1.2.    Port Performance
    Matadi Port is the most important maritime port in DRC with more than 90% maritime traffic non inclusive of oil-tankers.
    It has a potential capacity of handling 2,500,000 Mt of cargo per year

    N.B.: Upon looking at vessels calls numbers one notices that it has remained more or less the same over the last 3
    years. However, upon discussion with Clearing Agents/Shipping Line Agents, the information is, that the capacity of the
    vessels has increased in order to meet market requirements (Increase of imports and drafts specification/constraints of
    Port).

    PERFORMANCE FOR YEAR: 2008
    Vessels calls                                                            30 per month

    2.1.1.3. Discharge Rates (ONATRA)

    See Annex and http://www.onatra.info

    Handling operations:

    Stevedoring and shore handling of containerized and general cargo is performed by the port authority called ONATRA.
    However, due to lack of handling equipment/on shore cranes (more than 3 Tonnes capacity), only geared vessels
    should call DRC ports. Cargo is handled compulsorily with shore equipment unless breakdown of port equipment has
    occurred. However again, the port’s shore cranes can only handle cargo charges below 3 Tonnes.
    Vessels are not authorized to use their own labour (Crew boys) for stowage or unstowage. However, according to port
    regulations, all cargo is discharged or loaded on ship’s own risk, and ONATRA (Stevedoring Company takes no
    responsibility whatsoever for accidents or damage caused to persons, ships, goods or any other object.

    Stevedoring (Transfer of cargos from vessel hatches to under ship’s tackle):
        •   Done by ONATRA - using vessel cranes or ONATRA’s shore cranes.
        •   However, ONATRA’s shore cranes can only handle cargo charges below 3 Tonnes

    Shore Handling (Transfer of cargos from under ships tackle to warehouse or container terminals):
        •   Done by ONATRA - using Trucks, forklifts and Reach Stackers
        •   Due to lack of equipment private companies are obliged to use their own private equipment.
        •   CMA-CGM DELMAS using SDV AGETRAF’s equipment;
        •   MAERSK LINE using SOTRACO’s equipment,
        •   BRIDGE LINES also using SOTRACO.

           •    The equipment of ONATRA is old and deficient and frequent breakdowns are common. As a result discharge
                operations are slow.
           •    Productivity: discharge rates depend on number and quality of cargo handling equipments and the productivity
                of port Dockers (labor).


    1
        Sections 2.1.1.3 and 2.1.1.4. may help in measuring charges for charter vessels or consignments and dealing with F.F.

                                                                        22
    •    The average of discharge rate of bagged and general cargo varies between 500 and 750 tonnes per day of 3
         shifts.
    •    For containers the average is 50 to 100 containers per shift for imports.
    •    For exports the average is rather low – 50 containers per shift.
    •    Rates: It must be noted that the ports of DRC are known to be one of the most expensive ports in the world.

Official rate of DRC port are the following:

Stevedoring: US$25 per Mt

    •    This rate is usually included in the sea freight charges. It is charged by ONATRA to the shipping lines - unless
         vessel is charted and Sea Freight has been negotiated free out (stevedoring charges not included).
    •    Vessels ETA must be confirmed 24 Hours before arrival in order to allow stevedores to arrange gangs.

Shore Handling: US$ 35 per Mt

    •    ONATRA applies a minimum of 9.8 Tonnes per 20” containers (TEU), and 18.3 tonnes per 40” container (FEU).
         Shipments are stored in bonded warehouse and/or Terminal containers until customs cleared. Once customs
         clearance has been obtained, shipments are then loaded from these warehouses or container Terminals onto
         trucks or rail wagons.

    •    Direct delivery operation i.e. discharging of cargo from vessel onto truck or wagon is not encouraged by
         ONATRA. The reason for such policy is due to the fact that it reduces the discharge productivity.

    •    The superintendent at Matadi is O.C.C. (Office Control Congo) which is also a Parastatal. They are in charge to
         do the verification of all import whether it is fit for humanitarian consumption or not. They do the inspection at
         port with OFIDA (Office de Douanes et Assises).

The Following certificates/documents are needed to be checked for a vessel to call all DRC maritime ports:
    •    Clearance of the last port
    •    Registry Certificate
    •    Cargo Ship Safety Construction Certificate
    •    Cargo Ship Safety Radiographic Certificate
    •    International Load Line Certificate
    •    Derating exemption Certificate
    •    Crew Roll

               can only handle cargo charges below 3 tonnes.

    ONATRA advises all vessels calling the ports of MATADI, BOMA, BANANA to be self equipped due to lack of
    shore cranes cables of discharching heavy cargos.

    2.1.2.     Boma Port

    2.1.2.1 Port Overview
    The Port of BOMA is located about 88 kilometers from the ocean, and it is the second largest maritime port in DRC after
    the Port of MATADI. The official draft is limited to 6.5m

    This factor limits access to small vessel fully loaded and big vessels partially loaded (5,000 to 8,500 TPL). The draft
    limitation affects both MATADI and BOMA ports.

    Quays Lengths:
       •   Quay 1: Length: 170 m, width 15 m
       •   Quay 2: Length: 155 m, width 15 m
       •   Quay 3: Length: 155 m, width 15 m

    There is a fourth quay called “quai de batelage’ reserved for small boats, tugs and barges. This quay measures 238 m in
    length, 33 m of which is reserved to RVM (Regie des Voies Maritimes) for pilot boats.

    BOMA port’s total quay length is 718 m (480 m reserved for berthing). Link to port website: http://www.onatra.info

    •      The Port of Boma has eventually an even greater extension capacity for both containers and vehicles in light of
           the fact that the Railroad network for the Mayombe has been closed. This space located next to the diesel
           station is triangular shaped and has the following measurements.

2.1.2.10.           Container Terminal
    •      Containers can be received but due to lack of handling equipment at Boma Port, containers are usually
           discharged directly from vessel to trucks. When the locomotive is operational, goods are also stocked directly
           on wagons.

Security and accessibility
   •    A fence measuring 1,850 m in length and 3 m high is under construction. This work is being done by the port
        personnel and the investment is completely auto financed by the port authority itself. The estimated cost is
        $50,000 for 1,500 m.

    •      This is quite surprising when at the same time in Matadi; the Port has evaluated the construction work needed
           to rehabilitate its wall measuring 1,800 meters to 3 Million USD.

    •      The wall in the Port of BOMA is not comprised of antitheft wires or security cameras.


2.1.2.7 Stevedoring
    •      Stevedoring is the Transfer of cargos from vessel hatches to under ships tackle.
    •      These operations are performed by ONATRA, using vessel cranes or ONATRA’s shore cranes.
    •      However, ONATRA’s shore cranes can only handle cargo charges below 3 Tonnes.

2.2 Airport Assessment

2.2.1.   Civil Aviation
Due to the instability of DRC and the “post War” situation, the country’s airfield situation has remained the same since
2001. Almost no improvement or rehabilitation works have been accomplished other than MONUC’s.

It must be noted that due to inadequate safety standards, almost all air carriers certified by the Democratic Republic of
the Congo have been banned from operating at airports in the European Community by the European Commission.

As of December 2008, Air Tropic was the only company holding adequate and all necessary insurance documents to fly
within the DRC. (Unverified source)

REPORTED MONUC AVIATION FUEL FARMS:

Other than above information on fuel and refueling capacities on Airports/Airfields used by MONUC, the following
locations and modes of delivery were also given for general information:
     1. Dungu: There are 2 airstrips in Dungu; the first airstrip has limited capacity and is mainly used by humanitarian
         air transporters for small and medium operations. The second airstrip has been rehabilitated by Monuc and is
         suitable for C-130 type of aircraft. Fuel arrives by air from Entebbe
     2. Aru:                Fuel arrives by air (200 liters drums) and/or road from Entebbe
     3. Beni:               Fuel arrives by road from Kenya
     4. Uvira:              Fuel arrives by road from Bujumbura through ENGEN (ENGEN refuels aircraft)
     5. Kigoma:             Fuel arrives by rail from Dar-es-Salaam (Supplier is FINA CONGO through TOTAL)
     6. Manono:             Fuel arrives by air from Lubumbashi
     7. Kamina;             Fuel arrives by Air and/or rail from Lubumbashi
     8. Entebbe:            Fuel arrives by road from Kenya or through FINA/TOTAL Uganda
     9. Beni:               Fuel arrives by road with tank trucks and MONUC handles refueling of aircraft

Airfield Assessment Conclusion/Recommendation details:

In some areas of DRC airfields are land mined and thus impossible to use. This situation is to take into consideration in
use of humanitarian aid. The majority of airfields strips are available for caravan, helicopters and LET 410 aircraft

2. Road Assessment
 2.3.1.     Roads Overview

   -      Since colonial times and into the late 1970’s, the country’s roads have been subordinated as a transport means
          to the river-railroad system and no comprehensive network of highways exists between the principal urban
          centers or administrative seats.

   -      In 1977, it was estimated that there were a total of 170,000 kms of which about half were considered to have
          some importance nationally. The remaining 65,000 to 80,000 kms were of only local interest.

   -      Only about 2,250 kms were asphalted, the remaining roads had gravel or earth surfaces, and all were generally
          very poorly maintained. Congo’s extensive river network posed problems in many places for road transport.

   -      Roads in the areas of civil disturbances have deteriorated substantially. Rather widespread deterioration also
          has occurred and no rehabilitation efforts have been made for a long time. Office des Routes was assigned
          national responsibility for road maintenance and construction since 1972, however this body of government is
          not functional due to major lack of funds.

   -      Road infrastructures are generally in bad condition. Many roads are impassable during the rainy season. In
          addition during the dry season the roads become very sandy and trucks can get stuck.

   -      The domestic route having the greatest significance to the national economy is that between the major mining
          region in the southeast and the seaport of Matadi, comprising a rail link from Lubumbashi to Ilebo, river
          shipment from Ilebo to Kinshasa, and another rail link to Matadi. This was known as the National Way and its
          importance as a completely internal route acquired a further meaning in the mid 1970’s.

   -      Only about 1.3 % of roads in DRC are asphalted although some 7,200 kms of road rehabilitation projects are
          underway. The Ministry of Planning is overseeing the road rehabilitation projects. The World Bank is financing
          some 3,500 kms of National roads.

   -      The European Union financed the road between Matadi and Kinshasa, and is financing about 2,000 kms of
          other road projects from Kinshasa to Bandundu, Kenge and Mbandaka among others. They are also financing
          a project between Kisangani and Goma.

   -      DFID is financing 1,300 kms of road rehabilitation projects between Gemena and Kisangani.

   -      KFW is financing 280 kms of road projects in the North and South Kivu, and the Orientale province.

   -      African Development Bank is also financing 150 kms between Kinshasa and Kenge.

   -      Overall, most of the DRC’s road infrastructure is poor and WFP has enormous difficulties to get food or NFI to
          food distribution forward bases.

 2.3.2.     Road Construction & Maintenance
   -      Roads in DRC are in a general bad condition. They are in great need of urgent interventiuons to allow even
          humanitarian workers to come and go in order to assist different scenario disaters. In many areas, humanitarian
          intervention to respond to the population’s needs in many areas is not possible because of inaccessibility by
          roads.

   -      Roads are often reduced to simple trails, often flooded due to drainage problems, leading to erosion in the
          areas.

   -      Road rehabilitation allows humanitarian activities to saves lives often threatened by conflicts and other
          emergency situations. It also allows access and transport of IDP’s to the areas of return.

   -      Standard strategy of road rehab includes: drainage system rehabilitation, refilling with laterite in certain places,
          land clearing and construction of concrete bridges.

   -      Reopening of certain roads further gives a bolster to the local economy by creating more favorable conditions
          for commercial exchanges. This will also help reduce vulnerability and poverty in isolated areas.

  2.3.5.     Road Security

    -      Road security is good on the Axe Matadi – Kinshasa (road has been rehabilitated in recent years). However it
           should be noted that road is narrow and there are many movement of trucks to and from the ports which may
           create security issue depending on weather conditions (trucks overturn).
    -      The axe Boma – Kinshasa is in decline and some passages a quite difficult.
    -      The Axe Moanda – Boma is almost impassable to trucks. Only 4x4 can access with difficulties.
    -      In the rest of the country however most roads are in bad condition despite some efforts of improvement in areas
           of major traffic due to weather conditions in rainy season. Some roads remain impassable.
    -      There are also major issues of security in the eastern corridor due to the war.

                                                        SECURITY
                     Good                                  Marginal                                   Bad


  2.3.6.     Weighbridges
    -      There is one weighbridge located inside the Port of Matadi and managed by ONATRA.
    -      All trucks leaving and entering the port are weighed in order to control their aim and therefore control possible
           frauds on weight declared.
    -      Possible fraud could impact on security of shore handling equipment (forklifts/cranes) and the income of
           ONATRA (invoices are based on weight).
    -      Axle load limitation is not reinforced in the DRC.

  2.3.7.     Axle Load Limits

    -      DRC: Axle load limits are based on a 10 tonnes standard axle, although legislation is not enforced at all. No
           axle load limitations on secondary roads in DRC despite poor conditions of roads and bridges. However, due to
           numerous bridges in DRC, some of which are in bad condition, weight limitations on bridges is advised to be
           limited to 25 Tonnes.

    -      Burundi: There are no axle load limitations for Burundi.

    -      Rwanda: Axle load limitations in Rwanda are pending approval of the respective Government.

    -      Tanzania: The present legislations concerning maximum weight of vehicles is stipulated in the Highways
           Ordinance CAP 167, sections 46 and 47, and section s 102 and 103 of the road traffic Act No. 30 of 1973
           together with Regulations made under section 114 (1) (p) of the same act. Present regulations are contained in
           GN No. 54 of 1975, GN No. 1987 and GN No. 263 of 1993 and GN No. 30 of 2001. The axle load limits are
           based on a 10 Tonnes standard axle.

  2.3.8.     Bridges




Photos by WFP/Jean François MASSI/Dec 2008- Bridges in the Equator Region / National roads in area of BOENDE

The Ministere des Infrastructures, Travaux Publics et reconstruction (MITPR) is in charge on bridge inventory in the
DRC. However, many bridges need rehabilitation, some of which are on major road axis. It is therefore not possible to
give an exact account of bridges in such vast country.


  2.3.9.     Transport Corridors
The strategy is to bring food and NFI’s as close as possible to the affected areas. Based on the assessment done in
2008, WFP is already looking at different options in order to maximize the use of the different corridors. WFP Logistics
has a flexible strategy that allows use of different corridors and back-up options according to expected risks/constraints.
In addition, WFP fleet will be utilized on axis with poor road condition but with MONUC escorts. An increase of current
fleet capacity can be considered in case of an increased beneficiary caseload in area of difficult access.

  2.4.2.     Railway Overview




     -     The railway and river crossings are run by a state company named SOCIETE DES CHEMINS DE FER
           CONGOLAIS (SNCC). Over the years and with the wars, the railway has fallen into disrepair with railway
           tracks, wagons and locomotives needing to be rehabilitated and replaced. This situation makes it difficult to
           evaluate the capacity of the railway.

     -     There are two separate railway networks; One from Matadi to Kinshasa, and a much more extensive network
           from Sakania in Zambia through Lubumbashi in DRC.

     -     In the East, the railway network is 3, 641 kms with 858 kms electrified between Lubumbashi and Kamina, and
           Tenke and Mutshaba.

     -     There are 10 engines for the electrified tracks in working order and another four that could be rehabilitated.




                                                              72
    -    One of SNCC’s major problems is that they do not have enough funds to do regular maintenance on their
         engines nor the funds to purchase the larger spare parts required.

    -    There are 28 diesel electric locomotives for the non-electrified lines (most of the eastern network), but only
         about 18 are operational.

The allocation should be as follows:
    •    8 locomotives for Lubumbashi/Sakania,
    •    locomotives for Kolwezi and the Dilolo line,
    •    16 locomotives for the rest of the network.

    -    However, as only 18 are operational, it seems that they are allocated on an ad hoc basis with the largest
         number of locomotives being placed on the Lubumbashi – Mwene Ditu (Kassai Oriental) lines where there is a
         large amount of trade.

    -    For the Lubumbashi – Kolwezi (mining), Gecamines has leased two locomotives from South Africa and another
         mining company named Cargo Management also leased two locomotives from RSZ (in Zambia).

    -    SNCC has claimed to have approximately 4,000 wagons (including open wagons, closed wagons and container
         carriers). However, it seems that about 50% of these wagons are beyond repair. SNCC estimates that they
         have about 1,500 wagons that are in working order but nearly all of them need maintenance. Given that each
         locomotive can pull 16 wagons at a time and that there are currently 26 locomotives, the total requirement of
         wagons at any one time is 416. It would seem therefore, that the priority is not with wagons at the present time.

  2.4.4.    Railway Links to Adjacent Countries

There is only one currently functioning international link:
    •     ZAMBIA - yes - same gauge - 1067 mm, connects with railways of Zimbabwe, Mozambique and South Africa.
This link is not operating:
    •     ANGOLA - yes - same gauge - 1067 mm, but link to the port of Benguela has been unusable since the 1970s.

Boat links to rail lines in these neighboring countries:
    •    REPUBLIC OF CONGO - no direct link, but ordinary ferries across the Congo River from Kinshasa to
         Brazzaville can take passengers and freight to the CONGO –Ocean Railway (same gauge 1067 mm) which
         runs from Brazzaville to the Atlantic port of POINTE-NOIRE.
    •    TANZANIA no direct link but boats take freight between Kalemie and KIGOMA from where Tanzania's Central
         Line runs to the seaport of Dar es Salaam; there once was a train ferry from Kalemie built in 1917; break of
         gauge 1067 mm/1000 mm.

These neighboring countries have rail systems, but there are no links from the Congo:
    •   SUDAN - no - same gauge 1067 mm
    •   UGANDA- no - break of gauge1067 mm/1000 mm.

These neighboring countries have no rail systems:
    •   CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC
    •   RWANDA
    •   BURUNDI

  2.4.5.    Proposed Rail Projects

In September 2007 it was reported that China would provide US$5 billion for new infrastructure projects including
rehabilitation and construction of new sections to link Sakania and Lubumbashi to Matadi (3200 km), to be completed in
3 years.
A line from Uganda to Kasese was proposed in 2005.

  2.4.6.    Stations & Dry Ports

There are several dry ports in Kinshasa. The major one is TCPK

Due to incapacity to really evaluate railway network, it is quite impossible to determine ETD and ETA.
In Province of Katanga, contacts were made with SNCC authorities and weekly meetings have been set up in order to
better follow up tracking of wagons and locomotives. WFP should consider appointing a logistics officer in strategic town
(KAMINA) to give daily/weekly reports on movement of wagons thus cargo.

SNCC has an updated list of tariffs dated June 20, 2007. Please check in Annex list of tariffs.

2.5.       Waterways Assessment

2.5.1.     Waterways Overview

There is 15,000 kilometers of navigable waterways in DRC.

Main ports and port terminals:
    -   BANANA (BAS CONGO)
    -   BOMA (BAS CONGO)
    -   MATADI (BAS CONGO)

                                                            74
    -   KINSHASA (dry port/Capital)
    -   BUKAVU (SOUTH KIVU)
    -   BUMBA, GOMA (NORTH KIVU)
    -   KALEMIE (north of KATANGA)
    -   KINDU (MANIEMA)
    -   KISANGANI (PROVINCE ORIENTALE)
    -   MBANDAKA (EQUATEUR).

    •   The Congo River system is composed of three distinct sections - the upper, middle and lower Congo.
    •   The Lualaba River and Luvua River join together and then continue on to the Boyoma (Stanley) Falls
    •   Navigation is possible in the upper Congo by large vessels with low tonnage
    •   Kisangani is situated downstream from the Boyoma Falls and is at the beginning of where the Congo River
        becomes navigable… for 1,600 kms the river flows towards Kinshasa.
    •   At first the river is narrow but soon widens as it enters the alluvial plain.
    •   From the point where the river widens, strings of islands occur which divide the river into different arms.

    •   The width of the Congo River can vary from 5 km to 12 kms at the mouth of the Mongala River.
    •   Along the banks of the river are natural levees which have been formed by deposits of silt.
    •   When the river floods these levees are washed away and the river boundaries are increased.
    •   The middle Congo is characterized by the narrowing of the river.

    •   The banks are a half-mile to a mile apart, the river is much deeper and its current is faster.
    •   This section of the river is referred to as the Chenal (Channel) or Couloir (Corridor).
    •   It is along this stretch of the river that its principal tributaries flow into the Congo.
    •   They include the Ubangi River, Sangha River and the Kwa River.

    •   From the middle Congo (Chenal) the river divides into two, one branch forms Malebo Pool, which is 24 kms by
        30 kms in size. This is the end of the middle Congo.
    •   Downstream are the first of 30 waterfalls as the river continues to flow towards Matadi.
    •   At Matadi, the Congo's estuary begins in a narrow channel only about 1 km wide.
    •   Eventually it widens below Boma but islands are once again a factor, dividing the river into several arms. The
        Congo now flows freely into the Atlantic Ocean.

    •   Due to the fact that the Congo has many tributaries, the Congo River is the biggest transportation source in
        Central Africa.
    •   The Ubangi River is a major tributary, along with the Aruwimi, Kasai, and Lomami Rivers.
    •   The Congo River and all the streams that contribute to it together account for over 15,000 kms of navigable
        routes across Central Africa.

    •   Barges carrying loads of 800 to 1,100 tonnes are able to navigate at least 1,000 kms of the Congo throughout
        the year. These barges carry fuel, wood, minerals and agricultural produce and are a communication and
        transportation resource for those areas that are not served by roads.

    •   There are three main transportation routes, which come together downstream at Kinshasa on the Malebo Pool.
    •   These three routes have their origins in three places: Kisangani, Ilebo (on the Kasai River), and Bangui (on the
        Ubangi River).
    •   These routes have continued to aid economic development in those areas that are further inland and do not
        have access to the coast for shipping, etc.
    •   To facilitate transportation, railway systems have been built to complete the routes inland to the coastal regions
        along the Atlantic Ocean.

However, the river system in some areas is a drawback.
   •   There are only a few bridges that cross the river and its tributaries at present time, some are in urgent need of
       rehabilitation.
   •   This problem can only be solved in the future with cooperation and funds provided by the countries through
       which the river flows.

    •   The Congo River's flow and water levels are affected by the rains year round. This is due to the effects of
        rainfall throughout the regions whose rivers and tributaries contribute to the Congo River that influence the
        fluctuations in the flow of the river.
    •   However, because the Congo basin is an immense area, the weather pattern in one particular region will not
        have much effect on the river's overall levels (for example, heavy rainfall in the northern areas that contribute to
        the Ubangi River may cause flooding in the region itself, but generally do not lead to a drought in a southern
        portion of the Congo basin). Because of the vastness of the area, by the time the river's waters join together,
        very little effect will be seen.
    •   This allows the river's flow to balance out and not change too drastically during the year.




                                                            75
    •      Patterns have been established in the past and the river can be expected to have higher levels in December
           and May due to the rainy season.
    •      Levels are expected to be low in March and April and even lower in July in response to the dry season.
    •      If some of the weather patterns change drastically, resulting in floodwaters arriving at the same or different
           times, then the anticipated water levels will be affected accordingly.
    •      The flow has been recorded as high as 90,000 m³ per second during the flood of 1962. Its lowest level was
           recorded in 1905 at 25,000 m³ second.

    •      The DRC has more navigable rivers and moves more passengers and goods by boat and ferry than any other
           country in Africa. Kinshasa, with 7 km of river frontage occupied by wharfs and jetties is the largest inland
           waterways port on the continent. However, much of the infrastructure — vessels and port handling facilities —
           has, like the railways, suffered from poor maintenance and internal conflict.

    •      The total length of waterways is estimated at 15,000 km including the Congo River, its tributaries, and
           unconnected lakes.
    •      The 1,000 km Kinshasa-Kisangani route on the Congo River is the longest and best-known.
    •      It is operated by river tugs pushing several barges lashed together, and for the hundreds of passengers and
           traders these function like small floating towns.
    •      Rather than mooring at riverside communities along the route, traders come out by canoe and small boat
           alongside the river barges and transfer goods on the move.
    •      Most waterway routes do not operate to regular schedules.
    •      It is common for an operator to moor a barge at a riverside town and collect freight and passengers over a
           period of weeks before hiring a river tug to tow or push the barge to its destination.

2.5.1.1. International Links via Inland Waterways

    •      Kinshasa is linked to Brazzaville, Republic of the Congo, by regular boat and ferry services 3.5 kms across the
           Congo River.
    •      Kinshasa and other river ports via the Ubangui River to Bangui (Central African Republic).
    •      Goma and Bukavu on Lake Kivu to Gisenyi, Kibuye and Cyangugu in Rwanda.
    •      Kalemie, Kulundu-Uvira and Moba on Lake Tanganyika to Kigoma (Tanzania), Bujumbura (Burundi) and
           Mpulungu (Zambia).
    •      Kasenga and Pweto on the Luapula River-Lake Mweru system to Nchelenge, Kashikishi and Kashiba in
           Zambia.
    •      Lake Albert: two small ports on the DRC side, Kisenye near Bunia and Mahadi-Port in the north can link to
           Ugandan ports at Butiabo and Pakwach (served by Uganda Railways) on the Albert Nile, which is navigable as
           far as Nimule in southern Sudan. Water transport is conducted principally in small craft, and commercial water
           transport is relatively absent.
    •      Lake Edward: located within national parks, settlements are small, water transport is conducted principally in
           small craft, and commercial water transport is absent.

2.5.1.2. Domestic Links via Inland Waterways

The middle Congo River and its tributaries from the east are the principal domestic waterways in the DRC.
The two principal river routes are:
    •   Kinshasa to Mbandaka and Kisangani on the River Congo
    •   Kinshasa to Ilebo on the Kasai River

The most-used domestic lake waterways are:
    •  Kalemie to Kalundu-Uvira on Lake Tanganyika
    •  Bukavu to Goma on Lake Kivu
    •  Fimi River to Inongo on Lake Mai-Ndombe
    •  Irebu on the Congo to Bikoro on Lake Tumba
    •  Kasenga to Pweto on the Luapula-Mweru system

2.5.2.     River/Lake Port Assessment

River transport is the most important way of transporting in a country where there are few passable roads. It is also
significantly cheaper than road/rail transport. It is equally important for the passenger traffic. There are 15,000 kms of
navigable waterways in DRC, consisting chiefly of the Congo and Kasai rivers and their tributaries, which reach out into
almost all sections of the country. Except North East, the river transport forms the primary transport network in DRC. The
importance of movement of cargo via river transport would likely increase even in the future

River transport was under the control of the Office National des Transport du Zaire, which in the mid - 1970’s operated a
fleet of over 700 barges, more than 100 tugboats, and some twenty-five to thirty motor vessels of other types. The fleet
was in fairly in good condition but operational efficiency was relatively low. In 1977 Mobutu announced that the ONATRA
monopoly on river transport was to end and declared that anyone who had the means could build river boats and operate
cargo and passenger services freely.

The movement of cargo via river transport is two ways. One is the transporting of cargo to the different provinces from
Kinshasa which is related mainly to the imported cargo through Matadi Port and cement. The second one is the
transportation of especially agricultural products from the different parts of the country into Kinshasa.

2.5.2.1. Kinshasa Ports

There are River and Dry ports in Kinshasa.
        •    River Ports: One is managed by ONATRA (TCPK), and the others are managed by private companies
             (TFCE, NOCAFEX, and MPAKASA).
        •    Dry Ports:   Most of them are managed private companies (generally managed by freight forwarding
             agents) except for one called TCPK which is managed by ONATRA.

2.5.2.1.1.     Kinshasa River Ports

TCPK:

2.5.2.7.   Kalemie Port
     •     Description
     •     Kalemie, formerly Albertville, is a town on the western shore of Lake Tanganyika in the DRC.
     •     The town is next to the exit of the Lukuga River flowing out from Lake Tanganyika to the Lualaba River, to the
           west of KIGOMA in TANZANIA. It is the main entry point from Tanzania to DRC.
    •      The port at Kalemie was built to connect the Great Lakes rail line (from the Kabalo junction on the Lualaba
           River) to the Tanzanian lake port and railhead at KIGOMA, from where the Tanzanian Central Railway Line
           runs to the seaport of DAR ES SALAAM.
    •      The port was built with a 130 m wharf and 3 mobile cranes, giving it a capacity of 500 Mt per day with two shifts.
           Kalemie Port is operated by the railway company SNCC which also operates the railways in DRC (except for
           the Matadi-Kinshasa line) as well as boat services on the eastern waterways in the country.
    •      The cranes are non functional, and vessels cannot reach the wharf due to silting up of the lake next to it.
    •      The railway line for 100 km west of Kalemie is 'much degraded' and not fully operational.
    •      Kalemie Port is also used by boat services to the northern Lake Tanganyika ports of Kalundu-Uvira and
           BUJUMBURA in BURUNDI and southwards to Moba and MPULUNGU in ZAMBIA.
    •      SNCC has a fleet of 4 barges (one of which is dedicated to coal) but there are at least 30 private barges that
           operate on the lake.
    •      SNCC is currently rehabilitating an additional barge to satisfy increased demand for barge transport.
    •      The barges have a capacity of between 500 to 1,000 Mt but the lake has not been dredged for many years.
    •      During the dry season from May to December only barges of 200 Mt capacity can enter the port.

The port and the railway station are adjacent to each other.

           for days in dugout canoes.
    •      With the railway ending at Kindu, it is necessary for goods destined to and from Kisangani to be shipped along
           the river Congo between Kindu and Ubundu, where the rail links once again up to Kisangani.
    •      SNCC has 20 closed wagons in working order with a capacity of 20 Mt each.

           week. Therefore only two journeys a week can be done.
    •      The cost by river is US$0.16 Mt / km
    •      Villagers have been working for months to revamp the 900 miles of track almost entirely by hand.

    •  GISENYI         1,800 Mt
    •  ISAKA          16,500 Mt

KINSHASA
   •  In Kinshasa, WFP has warehouses with capacity of 3,000 Mt.
   •  Storage is located in container yard and warehousing complex of Congo Containers.
   •  It is rented from SDV Agetraf/Congo Containers.
   •  SDV Agetraf provides laborers, security guards, and is also responsible for regular fumigation.
   •  Warehouse has a rail siding and is secure
   •  There are no storage facilities in Matadi although this corridor is an important one in terms of cargo tonnage.
   •  ONATRA does not have storage facilities to rent.

GOMA
   •          WFP has 5 warehouses at present time.
   •          Three of the buildings are situated within and next to office compound.
   •          One is located next to office recently rented from OFIDA authorities.
   •          One is at the port used free of charge from SNCC.
   •          SPS is the labor company used at TMK Warehouse and AMAPOG at SNCC warehouse.
   •          There are no private pest control companies in GOMA.
   •          Pest control is a problem at the port warehouse as adjacent warehouse run by SNCC is not clean.

BUKAVU
   •  Warehouse space used/rented by WFP in Bukavu is owned by the OFFICE NATIONAL DE CAFÉ.
   •  Warehouse space is also rented by ICRC. Visited during LCA, warehouse appears in good shape.
   •  Building is suitable, goods are protected (put on palettes), warehouse in adequately ventilated and secured by
      guards.

                                                              92
    •    As warehouse is located on land next to Lake Kivu, construction work is underway to have direct access to lake
         by the means on a pontoon. This will facilitate transport of goods to different sites.
    •    WFP warehouses are available in Bukavu. ACF and UNHCR have small warehouses.
    •    There are no pest control companies in Bukavu.

BUNIA
   •  WFP rents a warehouse from TABACONGO. Most of WFP’s implementing partners also have warehouses in
      Bunia.
   •  There are other warehouses available for renting.
   •  There should be a greater demand from the commercial sector fro warehouse space once N2 road from
      Kisangani to Bunia is completed.
   •  WFP has a contract with ETABLISSEMENT 2M who employs 30 handlers and additional laborers can be added
      if necessary. Finding labour is not a problem in Bunia.
   •  There are no pest control companies in Bunia.

KALEMIE
   •  WFP has two concrete warehouses. One has a capacity of 800 Mt and the other of 200 Mt.
   •  These warehouses are situated within the office compound.
   •  The 800 Mt building is rented out to FHI (Food for Hungry International) due to the cost of the complex and in
      order to assist FHI as part of the logistics cluster.
   •  The problem with warehouses within the office complex is that they are situated about 7 kms from the port and
      the main rail station. As the majority of the commodities are to be transported by rail, this means a doubling of
      costs trucking commodities back to railway station, adjacent to port.
   •  WFP has therefore identified a large warehouse at the railway station which SNCC is prepared to rent to WFP.
   •  Storage capacity is approximately 1,000 Mt and is situated next to a rail siding.
   •  There are no private pest control companies in Kalemie.

UVIRA
   •  WFP’S warehouse is located in the port of Kalundu, 10 kms from town of Uvira.
   •  There are no pest control companies in Uvira.

     •   WFP has storage facilities in 17 different locations countrywide in DRC.
     •   This storage may be provided in LKinshasa, Goma, Kalemie, Mbandaka, and Lubumbashi.
     •   More than 15 users are already using ILS storage service throughout the DRC which in terms of numbers
         represents 25 requests – 4,000 m³ – 1,400 m³ of humanitaqrian NFI’s managed and stored with ILS support.

3.1. Fuel

3.1.1.    Fuel Overview

Fuel in the DRC is handled by SEP (Service des Entreprises Petrolieres Congolaises), a semi-public company. The main
shareholders are COHYDRO (36,6%), ARISTEA GROUP (TOTAL/ENGEN) (36,6%), SHELL OVERSEAS HOLDING
(13%), COBIL (7,8%) and SCP-ELF (6%).

SEP is responsible for Receipt, storage, handling, transport and quality control of refined oil products from the entry point
in the country to the delivery/consumption point. As a consequence, the company is in charge of countrywide
maintenance, security and development of fuels infrastructure and equipment in compliance with technical and security
standards. SEP-CONGO is also the exclusive customs agent for the customs clearance of oil products.

SEP has 25 inland depots, 10 depots at the airports, and 3 pumping stations. SEP imports approximately 450,000
m³/year and has storage capacity for 155,000 m³. Diesel is the main fuel consumed in the DRC.

Purchase of fuel is done through the operating fuel companies: SHELL, FINA, ENGEN, COHYDRO (National Company),
Congo Oil (a local company) and COBIL (exonmobil).

In Kinshasa, there is a common UN fuel depot for all UN agencies excluding MONUC. The fuel is supplied from SHELL
and a coupon system operates.

WFP has a shortlist for the purchase of fuel for its sub offices in Matadi, Kisangani, Lubumbashi, and Mbandaka. In
Eastern DRC, fuel is purchased from smaller private companies.

The supply of fuel to most operational WFP areas by road and rail areas is non existent due to broken down
infrastructure or non existent roads and bridges and lack of locomotives. Only limited capacity of fuel barge tankers
exists on Lake Tanganyika.

Summary of Role and Services:

3.1.2.    Fuel Supply & Storage

SEP-CONGO operates with 1,500 staff members in the following locations:
   •  38 depots and bases owned or rented by SEP-CONGO all over the country.
   •  The overall storage capacity is 232,275 m³ (25 inland depots, 10 depots at airports and 3 pumping stations)

    •     A pipeline network with a length of 719 km and a pumping capacity of 800,000 m³ per year.
    •     The pipeline transports the following liquid refined hydrocarbons: Petrol, Jet A1 and diesel.

The network of pipelines consists of:
    •   Pipes of 15cm diameter on the Matadi-Kinshasa axis (666 km)
    •   1 pipe of 15cm diameter on the Massina-HRS N’Djili axis (11 km)
    •   Pipes of 15cm and one of 25cm on the Massina-Kinshasa axis (42km)
    •   A fleet (5 pushers/barges),
    •   A rolling stock (115 units comprising 113 rail fuel cars and 2 locomotives),
    •   Road transport (35 trailers, 32 prime mover tractors, 31 semi-trailers, 22 fuel road tankers and 5 fuel trailers).
    •   The general condition of the listed equipment may be assessed as “functional but not good,” mainly due to the
        factional fighting and internal conflicts over the past years.

The current operational storage capacity is approximately 155,000 m³, which accounts for roughly 2/3 of the total storage
capacity. The reasons for this low amount are as follows:
    •    General deterioration of the economy, particularly in the manufacturing and transport sector. As consequence,
         the main activity is now concentrated in Kinshasa.
    •    Due to fighting, areas that were previously commercial no longer are, except in those areas where MONUC is
         present.
    •    Emergence of large smuggling operations capitalizing on the illegal importation of fuels in the South (e.g. -
         Lubumbashi, Kananga)
    •    There is a pipeline network from MATADI to Kinshasa which transports petrol, JET A1 and diesel.
    •    In addition, SEP has a fleet of 5 barges and 5 pushers, 113 rail fuel cars, and 2 locomotives, and 120 road
         vehicles. However, much of the logistics infrastructure is not in good working order.

                                                             99
Some 27,000 barrels a day of oil are produced from both on and off-shore locations in DRC.
There are currently no operating refineries in the DRC although the Government is reportedly seeking partners to build a
new refinery with a capacity of 750,000 MT/year.

It appears also that there are no strategic stocks of fuel held by SEP.

All fuel requirements for Katanga region are either imported from South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, or Kenya.
      •    South Africa: directly by road and rail to Lubumbashi and Mpulungu in Zambia for DRC;
      •    Tanzania: via Dar Es Salaam to Lubumbashi and via Kigoma to Kalemie, Moba and Uvira in DRC; via Zambia
           by road to Lubumbashi;
      •    Zambia: by road and rail to Lubumbashi or from Mpulungu by barge/ tanker to Moba/Kalemie/Uvira (under
           assessment);
      •    Kenya: via Rwanda, Burundi by road through Bujumbura to Uvira in RDC for Kalemie and Moba by barge.

The main bulk storage in DRC is handled by state owned SEP Congo who is affiliated with FINA, COBIL, CONGO OIL,
ELF, and SHELL.

The Humanitarian community and UN agencies have expressed interest during logistics cluster meetings to maintain a
common approach in supplying fuel especially to remote hubs.

With WFP’s interagency fleet now spread out in Katanga province and with approval of Interagency garage in Kalemie,
there is a critical need to establish a storage facility and have a consistent supply of fuel maintained in Katanga Region.
This should keep fuel prices stable, even under momentary fuel crisis.

WFP/Interagency Fleet:
With the main WFP operational areas being Moba, Kilwa, and Kalemie, the current supply requirement of 20,000
Liters/month is being maintained from Lubumbashi and is trucked in 200 litre drums using interagency fleet. During the
rainy season from November to May, the roads are often impassable with trucks stuck for up to 2 weeks or more.

3.1.3.   Fuel Marketing & Local Distribution

Oil Companies. The major oil companies working in the DRC are:

    •    Shell: A major oil company.

    •    Fina: A relatively new to the DRC market

    •    Total: A strong company that owns Elf. Total Operates in the DRC as part of the Group Aristea.

    •    Engen: A company with its base in South Africa, owned by Petronas of Malaysia. Engen operates as part of the
         Group Aristea with Total.

    •    Cohydro: The National Oil Company. It is a company that urgently requires investment

    •    Congo Oil: A local company mainly found in the Kinshasa area.

    •    Cobil: The remnants of the Mobil Group now Exxon Mobile. Operates where SEP have storage; With
         previous/regular increase in fuel prices

The sources of fuel in DRC arrive via importation from the following corridors:
    •   Western Corridor: Carries approximately 85% of domestic fuel and is fed by tankers arriving in the Ports of
        Banana and Matadi in the Bas Congo Province. The unloading is at the Matadi and Ango–Ango terminal where
        50 m tankers can be accepted.

    •    Southern Corridor: Fed from Tanzania by road and South Africa by fuel rail wagons at Kasumbalesa. This
         route is plagued with problems such as insufficient funding for such basic commodities as diesel to run the
         locomotives.
    •
         Eastern Corridor: Fed from Kenya/Uganda in the North and Tanzania in the South. This corridor has for some
         time been affected by the Kenya Pipeline Corporation (KPC) and its problems of under capacity.

    •    MONUC gets its JET A1 from Tanzania. In eastern DRC, fuel is purchased from local companies.

    •    Fuel supply in Goma is provided by JUMBO SAFARI, AFRICOM, MUNSAD, PETROLCONGO,
         SUPERSTATION, STATION SSS, STATION IBB, and GRACE A GLOIRE. All these fuel stations import fuel
         from Kenya, and it is inspected by SEP Congo. However, in the east, SEP does not control the supply except
         for JET A1 which sells directly to customers.

    •    In Bukavu, fuel arrives by road from Kenya via Rwanda. Local distributors include: GINKI, OLIVE, and MOBIL.

                                                            100
    •   In Uvira, fuel comes from Tanzania. GINKI is the sole distributor in Uvira.

    •   Fuel supply from Zambia: In the last few years there have been no problems of supply for diesel and petrol, but
        JET A1 is a problem.

Commercial suppliers in Kalemie and Moba:
   •  ABS Mamry: declined to respond to last RFQ to supply bulk fuel from Tanzania due to price fluctuations and is
      not interested in selling tax free. Furthermore, they do not have storage facility and presently rent SEP Congo
      storage through FINA. They are planning to install their own fuel station in the near future.

    •   ECO Prop: Normally, they buy their fuel from Kenya via Uvira in drums however they do not have a storage
        facility and are not consistent.

    •   SEP Congo in Kalemie: Has bulk fuel storage (duty free) in Kalemie to handle Gas oil, Petrol and Jet A-1, with
        a strategic rail link from Kalemie Port.

    •   SNCC Kalemie: Has only one tanker called KALONDA with a capacity of 120m3 in working condition, but not
        self propelled.

    •   Supply from Lubumbashi: Congo Oil has expressed interest in supplying fuel using/SEP Congo fuel tankers
        by rail to both Kalemie and Kindu.

3.2. Transporters

3.2.1. Transport Market Overview
Ground transport in DRC has always been difficult. On the other hand, the DRC has thousands of kilometers of
navigable waterways, and traditionally water transport has been the dominant means of moving around approximately
two-thirds of the country.

As an illustration of transport difficulties in the DRC, even before wars damaged the infrastructure, the so-called
"national" route, used to get supplies to Bukavu from the seaport of Matadi, consisted of the following:
     •   Matadi to Kinshasa                            - Rail
     •   Kinshasa to Kisangani                         - River boat
     •   Kisangani to Ubundu                           - Rail
     •   Ubundu to Kindu                               - River boat
     •   Kindu to Kalemie                              - Rail
     •   Kalemie to Kalundu (the lake port at Uvira) - Boat on Lake Tanganyika
     •   Kalundu to Bukavu                             - Road

Air transport is the only effective means of moving between many places within the country. The Congolese government,
the United Nations, aid organizations and large companies use air rather than ground transport to move personnel and
freight.

The UN operates a large fleet of aircraft and helicopters, and compared to other African countries the DRC has a large
number of small domestic airlines and air charter companies.

Links through neighboring countries are generally more important for the east and south-east of the country, and are
more heavily used, than surface links to the capital.

3.2.2.   Ground Transportation & Trucking Companies

There are no specific rates or tariffs (despite Union Agreement), although most major trucking companies in DRC
generally tend to apply through their union the same basic rates for similar axes. Rates applied are usually based upon
requests of quotation.

Due to size of the country, the conditions of the roads, there is not one company capable to offer its services all over
DRC.

The following are just a few Transport companies contacted for details, a shortlist Logistics providers, is provided in
Annex for different areas of operations.

3.6. Handling Equipment




    •    Few companies are willing to invest in expensive handling equipments in areas of instability. As a result, most
         handling companies who have adequate equipment tend to be located either in Kinshasa, Matadi, or Boma.
    •    Only private companies and MONUC offer handling equipment that is fully operational. TRACTAFRIC is a
         foreign company that sells handling equipment, however they are only located in Kinshasa and Lubumbashi.
    •    SIFORCO (Timber Company) builds and sells palettes.

3.7. Electricity / Power

    •    The Congo River has an average flow of over 40,000 m³/sec, which is an exceptional source of energy. It is
         estimated that this river represents around 13% of the world’s hydroelectric potential. Its force alone could
         satisfy the electricity requirements of the entire African Continent.
    •    In May 2006, Mage-Energy (Canada) began overseeing the refurbishment and rehabilitation work on the INGA
         dam, which is operating at 40% of its capacity. The repairs should allow the two INGA generating units to work
         at full capacity (1,774 MW) by 2010.
    •    Unfortunately, in many rural areas of the country, petrol generators are still the only source of electricity.

4         Scenario’s & Contingencies
The following sub-chapters attempt to map the potential scenarii as outlined in own or inter-agency contingency planning
exercises, assess the impact and expected response.

      •    Since late August 2008, heavy fighting between Government forces (FADRC) and rebel leader Laurent
           Nkunda’s Congrès National pour la Défense du Peuple (CNDP) in North Kivu has jeopardized the January 2008
           ceasefire agreement and displaced more than 100,000 people.

      •    Further, the Ugandan rebel group Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) has attacked villages in Ituri, displacing up to
           100,000 people. The UN Mission to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (UN MONUC) has more than 17,000
           peacekeepers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) with a mandate to forcibly implement the
           ceasefire agreement.

PIPELINE SITUATION

      •    As of October 24, the total projected shortfall for DRC PRRO 10608.0 from November 2008 through April 2009
           is more than 21,000 metric tonnes, equivalent to US$28.5 million.

      •    The PRRO has outstanding financial advances totaling to US$8.5 million, bringing the total project funding
           needs to nearly US$37 million over the next six months.

      •    Without significant efforts to avert a crisis, the situation in eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo is on the
           verge of a war that could engulf the entire region.
                                                                                       th

Transport                 Securing additional transport is a crucial requirement.

4.2        Food Security

Locally procured food within DRC normally comes from the North Kivu area. Therefore, in worst case scenario, this
option could not be pursued. It is likely that raw materials will remain blocked in villages given the highly insecurity of
road travel/transport. The areas most affected will be GOMA and BUNIA which will most likely be completely cut off.

Logistics Considerations (e.g. existing capacities / augmentation vis a vis scenario)
General                 Chronic food insecurity can result from intense fighting in area, changing rainfall patterns and/or

                         population movements
                         Additional storage will be needed in locations/at point of distribution. Total capacity requirements
                         would depend on further scenario development and contingency planning; however there is
Storage
                         limited commercial storage in this area so the use of Wiik Halls would be required to
                         accommodate WFP and NGO’s needs.
                         Inter-agency intervention will be required. Further scenario development and contingency
                         planning is needed to determine potential needs, however it is clear that existing logistics
Transport                systems would be insufficient to cope with such and increase in requirements. WFP fleet would
                         be insufficient to handle the increased requirement so trucking would be the most logical solution
                         in this event.

4.3       Natural Disaster

Large scale volcanic eruption or methane explosion in Lake Kivu Natural disasters have been taken into account in the
scenario but not in the strategic response plan, given the unpredictability of this type of event.
In case of a natural disaster affecting an area of the DRC (flood, volcano eruption, earthquake, etc...) a Flash Appeal
could be made in consultation with authorities and humanitarian partners.
A coordination group will be set up should such a disaster occur.

OPERATIONAL PLAN WORSE CASE SCENARIO                                                  EASTERN DRC

Rationale
This document is meant to:
    1) Briefly review current contingency planning assumptions for the Kivus and Orientale Province; update/convert
        them into an operational plan for the worse case scenario;
    2) Highlight/suggest alternative operational options (their gaps and constraints) based on the level of humanitarian
        access.

Review

The 2008 planning assumptions are still valid with the 2008 worst case scenario increasing its relative likelihood
over time.

The continued failure to implement the various agreements and failure to resolve key issues in eastern DRC, led to a
resumption of conflict on August 28, 2008 between Government forces (FADRC) and rebel leader Laurent Nkunda’s
Congrès National pour la Défense du Peuple (CNDP) with major humanitarian consequences in North Kivu, South Kivu
and Orientale Province.
A cease-fire has been agreed between the CNDP leader L. Nkunda and SG Special Envoy Olusegun Obasanjo on
November 16 in Jomba (Rutshusu territory). Key points of the agreement were: (1) implementation of a sustainable
ceasefire; (2) set- up of a tripartite verification mechanism comprising the FARDC, the CNDP and a third party accepted
by all parties; (3) the opening and respect of humanitarian corridors to allow access to relief aid for IDPs and the
recognition of SGSE as mediator.

Although the current situation is less tense, an increasing level of conflict of a more protracted nature is still expected,
involving the CNDP and the FARDC/MONUC, FDLR and/or Mai-Mai militias with potential cross border support for
various factions.

EW Indicators:
  The Security Situation continues very unstable tense and volatile in the Eastern DRC with absent of positive
  indicators at all levels for the resolution of the Conflict.

      •   Recent attempts by Kabila's government to co-opt Nkunda and his forces have backfired, strengthening
          Nkunda’s forces and strengthening hardliners in the Presidential circle who prefer a military solution. CNDP

                                                             119
         continued to expand the zone under its control gaining the entire territory of Rutshuru, posing a direct threat to
         Kanyabayonga. CNDP currently controls Rwindi (30 Km south of Kanyabayonga) and the area of North Kikuku
         (20 Km south of Kanyabayonga on the Nyanzale- Kanyabayonga axis).
    •    The capability of FARDC to defend Kanyabayonga is questionable due to internal mutiny and the semi-collapse
         of its command and control structures. Given the systemic weakness of the Congolese army, the DRC
         government has allied itself with the FDLR for military operations against Nkunda.
    •    Moreover on the eve of the disengagement process within the framework of Amani, remark divergences are
         emerging among the Mayi-Mayi groups which might derail the entire process. Main potential threats FDLR–
         FRF and Banyamulenge Armed Groups – PARECO – CNDP – RASTA– FNL– Mayi-Mayi – Demobilized
         soldiers – Non-brassaged soldiers – FARDC– GR – Demonstrators.

           The potential increases for Rwanda to be drawn back into Congo -- as in the two previous wars.
           Potential for Burundi to be destabilized given the current political trends; The Burundi army has is officially on
         a war footing at the end of November. Most of the army are Tutsis. Tension is increasing between the
         Burundian army and Hutu rebels.

In particular:
    •    ORIENTALE PROVINCE -The FRPI / FPJC Militias threat in Irumu territory persists in spite of the on going joint
         FARDC / MONUC military operations.
             Dungu Territory likely to deteriorate (after 29 November) should Kony (LRA Militia leader) refuse once more
         to sign the Final Peace Agreement as scheduled. As a consequence, the FARDC/MONUC operations,
         supported by are likely to resume after 29 November which will trigger renewed LRA Militias attacks against
         villages. The LRA leadership considers the FARDC deployment as a provocation and has resorted to attack
         civilians as a result. Main potential threats: Splinter factions of Armed Groups – FARDC – UPDF – Demobilized
         groups - escaped prisoners – ethnic tensions.
    •    GRAND NORD is worsening. A large number of cases of lootings, extortions, and ambushes attributed to the
         deserting FARDC and the Mayi-Mayi continue to be reported on the Kanyabayonga /Butembo axis. In Beni
         where the FARDC are being reorganized. About 4000 combatants are expected to arrive in that area which is
         likely to generate important protection issues for civilians. In addition, the concentration of ADF/NALU elements
         in Kisima (25 km of Beni) could be an aggravating factor.
    •    NORTH KIVU: CNDP’s strategic withdrawal into the Petit Nord and subsequent regained control of axe Kiwanja
         –Ishasa will allow the politico-military movement to consolidate its military and administrative domination in that
         area. Likely Nkunda’s next target step will be Masisi territory and possibly Kalehe (Minova )Nof South Kivu.
            CNDP continues to recruit, especially in the Kiwanja and the Kiringi area as well training of their cadres Main
         potential threats: Nkunda loyalists – Mayi-Mayi – PARECO – FDLR – FARDC - Ethnic violence – Anti-MONUC
         sentiments and hysterical mobs– ADF/NALU - GR.
    •    SOUTH KIVU: The overall situation though potentially volatile is likely to deteriorate in the near future notably
         in the Kalehe territory and in the Hauts Plateaux (increased activities of Banyamulenge insurgents are
         reportedly concentrated in a location situated 3 km of Minembwe. Meanwhile, Maj Mazuri (a Munyamulenge,
         ex-111 FARDC Brigade demobilized officer and a close ally of Nkunda) who was in Burundi, infiltrated the
         Hauts Plateaux, along with 12 elements, and is now recruiting. Under these conditions, it cannot be excluded
         that the FRF or a faction thereof (Banyamulenge insurgents with direct links to CNDP) launch coordinated
         operations to destabilize South Kivu). Meanwhile Mayi-Mayi groups are reorganizing themselves in order to
         face further attacks of the “enemies”.

Worse Case Scenario
Large scale fighting breaks out throughout the province of North Kivu with significant human rights abuses from all sides
and major inter-ethnic clashes forcing humanitarian actors to work in a very hostile and difficult environment.
In South Kivu, should the FARDC/MONUC actively pursue the FDLR, clashes are likely to intensify as there are FDLR
strongholds in the province. The potential for subsequent localized armed conflict remains high and a further
deterioration in North Kivu could fuel the conflict in South Kivu. As the general situation deteriorates, security declines
with increased displacement and ethnic clashes – both of which remain a significant concern.
Significant displacement occurs within North Kivu and South Kivu (800,000 each territory) and spreads beyond the
province, as well as to neighbouring Rwanda (refugees of Tutsi ethnic origin), Uganda (refugees of non-Tutsi origin) and
Burundi.
Conflict could also erupt within Goma, with significant repercussions. Displacement spreads further to the neighbouring
Ituri District (240,000) which, coupled with its own tensions in the Lake Albert border region with Uganda (due to clashes
between the two armies over resource-rich islands), also puts this area in particular risk.
A Congolese alliance with the FDLR could draw Rwanda back into eastern Congo, and a full-scale war could again
engulf the Great Lakes region.




                                                            120
Conflict patterns:
As highlighted in the operational plan for North Kivu Province – the political situation is very fluid with recurrent breaches
of peace (mainly resulting from the non-implementation of peace agreements) and subsequent short-term ceasefires.

Although the worse case scenario is considered the most likely one -and is the basis of this operational plan- there is
still a possibility of a de-escalation of violence, with the current security situation de-evolving into another
temporary stalemate. However, this is considered as a less likely scenario.

The main patterns of the less likely scenario are (1) continuous but limited criminality and violence throughout the Kivus;
(2) lack of disarmament and repatriation of FDLR, resulting in (3) recurrent sporadic clashes among CNDP, Mai-Mai,
FDLR and other actors, leading to recurrent and temporary displacement of civilians.

Current response

Initial response in the North Kivu area as follow: camps in urban areas are receiving three month full ration. In the rural
areas, three different scenarios according to location have been programmed: one time distribution (Rutshuru east); two
month distribution (Kitchanga area); three month distribution (Rutshuru west/Nyanzale). All initial assistance will then be
followed by already planned assessment. A potential increase in targeted assistance through FFW and seeds protection
activities is expected.

TOTAL FOOD: Projected and actual operational figures:

LOCATION                     NOVEMBER                  DECEMBER                   JANUARY                   FEBRUARY
North Kivu                       6,310                     8,430                     8,190                     8,110
South Kivu                       2,700                     2,940                     2,380                     2,140
Orientale                        4,828                     4,828                     4,828                     4,086
TOTAL FOOD                       13,838                    16,198                    15,398                    14,336

         It is likely that the security situation remains the major variable to the effective delivery of relief in the short and
         medium term, therefore different operational options for humanitarian access are being considered.

         Stragegy for the worst case scenario would be that of prepositioning food commodities in strategic locations
         outside DRC and as close as possible to the expected affected areas. Those locations are Kampala- Kigoma –
         Kigali /Isaka and Gisenyi.

Worse case scenario - Response to population in need and resources required:

Displacement - Main planning assumptions are the following:
•   The conflict is likely to unfold in historical areas of confrontation – with hotspots mainly concentrated around
    traditional mining areas;
•   IDPs are likely to move following habitual routes mainly according to (1) their ethnicity; (2) camps locations; and (3)
    road conditions.
•   Historically the nature of displacement in eastern DRC is temporary with beneficiaries hosted by families likely to be
    displaced for a shorter term (3 to 6 months); and IDPs located in camps likely to be assisted for longer term (6
    months to 1 year).
•   Hosting families usually receive a caseload estimated at 40% of the total IDPs.
•   Although the number of returnees in the worse case scenario equals zero in each location, a 5% increase of
    temporary returnees should be considered if the pattern of the worse case scenario allows for multiple ceasefires
    following the resumption of war.

Expected Population Movements:
•  Orientale: Moving at the border with North Kivu and toward the Eastern part of the province with some of the
   population ready to cross to Uganda.
•  North Kivu: Toward Province Orientale; upward North (toward Bunia) as well as toward South Kivu;
•  South Kivu: Toward Maniema and Southern part of South Kivu, some people expected to cross to Rwanda.
•  Maniema: Expected to receive IDPs from South Kivu.

Estimated outflow – regional implications:
To: Uganda: 100,000 to 150,000; Burundi: 75,000; Rwanda: 45,000

Main cities - Planning assumptions based on historical trends:
Urban population is more likely to move toward urban areas than rural areas.
•   Goma: if Goma is attacked before Bukavu, population movements will be expected toward Bukavu either by road or
    by boat. If the road is open, a minority of people could continue and try to enter Rwanda. Population movements are
    also expected toward Sake and Minova. Gama’s Tutsi minority is likely to go to Gisenyi by road.



                                                              121
•   Bukavu: given the strong anti-Rwanda attitude, the population is expected to remain in the city with only few
    displaced crossing to Rwanda. Population is expected to group in public buildings (caseload: 50,000 max)
•   Bunia: population expected to divide itself according to ethnic polarization (there is not a defined minority creating a
    sort of balance of power) and expected to group in public places or in camps within their own town (caseload:
    150,000 max).




Findings:
The total IDPs caseload for eastern DRC is 1, 910,000 people for the worse case scenario.
Given both security and logistic constraints, a realistic operational assumption is that -out of the total caseload- WFP will
be able to reach 1,415,000 IDPs for a total of 23,560 Mt/month.

Risk analysis of main supply routes

There are currently two main historical supply routes for eastern DRC:
1. The northern corridor with commodities dispatched Ex-Mombasa through Kampala and on to Goma or Bunia or Beni;
2. The second corridor is: Ex- Dar-es-Salaam onwards     To Kigoma and then up to Uvira then Bukavu then Goma;

Two main operational options for humanitarian access inside DRC have been considered:

Worst Case (increasing likelihood over time)
        Option 1: Sub-regional war in which neighboring countries are involved. Main supply roads are likely to be
        destabilized.
                  Use of current logistic set-up not affected by conflict;
                  Establish additional forward bases (transshipment points).
                  Increase use of air assets for life saving humanitarian operation.
Most likely
        Option 2: Limited to DRC only -worsening of the security situation with a concurrent temporary reduction in
        road access.

While these two options are listed as separate they are linked each other and it is important to consider them and their
relative likelihood. While it is considered at the moment that the second option is still the more likely, the risk of a worst
case scenario is increasing over time. This operational plan will consider the worst case scenario.

Less likely/best case scenario:
Although tension is likely to remain high, humanitarian corridors -inside DRC- are likely to progressively open if the
security situation improves. WFP is prepared to respond progressively using secure windows for distributions based on
accessibility to the beneficiaries.

          Logistics: Main Priorities:
          Pre-positioning up to 10000 MT in strategic locations that are outside DRC.
          Coordinate road rehabilitation projects along main axis inside DRC.
          Increase of storage capacity in main hubs and field locations.

          Program: Main Priorities:
          Diversification of program activities: moving beyond general distribution activities and invest more in
          multifaceted programs.
          Testing new tools (e.g. cash and food programs) in the areas in which food availability is not the main problem.

Additional/Alternative supply routes likely to be opened in order to increase through-put capacity:

        Kigoma/Mpulungu – Bujumbura (by barge) – Uvira, Bukavu, Goma (by road)
    Additional port capacity and barge operators in Bujumbura available to be used in case of congestion in Uvira
    Current corridor Mpulungu/Kigoma – Uvira (by road) – Bukavu (by barge) - Goma
                                                                                          th
        Dar es Salam - Isaka - Kigali – Goma (by road) – newly opened on Nov 7 .
    This is an additional corridor to Goma. It is important since maize in grain can be milled either in Isaka or in Kigali.
         Dar es Salam – Isaka – Bukavu (by road) to be activated in case of increased needs.

        Mombasa – Kampala /Tororo – Beni already active – [Butembo alternative]
    Maize grains to be milled in Kampala.




                                                             123
  ENTRY POINTS: the increased requirements can be covered by using the above mentioned traditional corridor and
  by compliment them with the following options:
          From Beira – Lusaka – Mpulungu
          From Durban -- Lusaka- Mpulungu

Main Assumptions:
Supply roads via Rwanda and Burundi that are being opened to support the increased caseload are also exposed to risk
of closure if there is a sub-regional war in which these neighboring countries are involved. In this case, a
regionalization of the conflict at the border with Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi is expected with main supply routes likely
to be destabilized.

Therefore:
    •   All supply routes from Rwanda and Uganda and Burundi are at risk of closure under this scenario. Increase
        reliance on air operations – air drops.

Strategy is to bring the food as close as possible to the affected areas.

                  Some 15-20,000 MT of food will be positioned in Kampala, Kigoma and Kigali (if it is not possible to
                  reach Kigali, second best alternative will be Isaka.
                  Depending on the evolution of the conflict, mobile storage facilities are likely to be opened to reach
                  some of the IDP’s that are moving out of the conflict zones.
                  Other beneficiaries are likely to remain trapped in the conflict areas. These beneficiaries are likely to
                  be served mainly through air drops.




   In the worst case scenario the requirement of 23,560 Mt/month can be achieve by using the following corridor
        allocation:
                    ex Kampala:      8,400 Mt/Month
                    ex Dar (direct): 8,000 Mt/Month
                    ex Kigoma:       5,500 Mt/Month
                    ex Mpulungu:     1,500 Mt/Month option to be activated to cover beneficiaries in the Maniema
                    ex Lubumbashi      500 Mt/Month
                    ex Kisangani       300 Mt/Month

     Within this logistic structure is still possible to increase the corridor capacity to cover increased needs – if needed.

   Assessment: Internal Transport inside DRC - for worst case scenario caseload




                                                       125
AIR OPERATIONS:

Major airport facilities inside DRC:
GOMA
    •    Airstrip limited (short) due to last volcano eruption –
    •    Limited to C130 and An-12.

DUNGU
         There are 2 airstrips in Dungu: One airstrip has a limited capacity and it is mainly used by humanitarian air
         transporters that are small, not for major operations.
         The second airstrip has been rehabilitated by MONUC and it is suitable for C130 type of aircraft.
    •    Payload limitation for aircraft landing at the Dungu MONUC air strip (in compacted soil) is 11 MT. Air
         operators contracted by humanitarian organisations have to rely on MONUC for refuelling in Dungu and/or
         Bunia.
    •    Local storage capacities in Dungu are limited. Mobile storage required to meet humanitarian demands.

BUNIA:            airstrip suitable for C130.
BUKAVU:           airstrip 2000 Mt length, suitable for C130 and B727.
KISANGANI:        airstrip suitable for C130 and IL72.
KINDU:
KALEMIE:

Majority of field strips available for caravan, helicopters and LET-410.

If there is a conflict inside DRC, major airport facilities are likely to remain closed.

Major airports outside DRC relevant to the operation are:
         Entebbe Airport
         Depending on the security situation Kigali and Bujumbura can also be used.




                                                            126
Procurement and Pipeline:

Current situation:
The Budget Revision that has been endorsed by the ED indicates an increase of 55,900 MT of food in North Kivu, South
Kivu and Orientale Provinces.
Total projected shortfall for the coming 6 months (Nov 08-April 09) is 32,600 MT.
Total projected shortfall for the coming 12 months (Nov 08-Oct 09) is 90,700 MT.

Procurement Options – Major Constraints:




Locally procured food within DRC normally comes from the North Kivu area. Therefore, in the worst case scenario this
option cannot be pursued. It is likely that raw materials will remain blocked in villages given the highly insecurity on
roads. Especially the area Goma/Bunia will be cut off – since all contracts likely to be defaulted or cancelled. It is likely
that -even if there are multiple ceasefires- contractors will not be able to move locally procured food in the worse case
scenario.

         Actions: Conduct more in-depth pipeline analysis taking into account, CO level pipeline, operational
         constraints/likely caseloads to be reached, forecasted contributions of major donors.

Milling Capacity:
Milling capacity for additional needs is a major constrain.
The table below shows actual milling capacity in the region.

               CAPACITY
 LOCATION
               (AV/MONTH)       EXPLANATION
 KENYA               6,000      This is the total capacity in Kenya
                     2,000
 UGANDA                         2,000 + Nalukolongo 1,000
                     1,000
 RWANDA              2,000
 ZAMBIA               15,000
 TANZANIA              3,200    Using both milling plants in Isaka (120 Mt/day and Dodoma 40 Mt/day)
 Goma               1,000 x 3

Kenya Milling:
       Kenya has approximately 25 mills across the country 18 of which are large scale (150 Mt plus per day) however
       the majority of these mills are wither in poor operating order; already full operational to capacity or have below
       acceptable HACCP standards for hygiene.
       Mills are located across the country – Mombasa, Nairobi, Eldoret, Kitale & Kisumu - being the major sites,
       therefore there are options no matter which entry point is used i.e. there is talk of bring from Tanzania into
       Kenya via overland and obviously through the port.
       The latest evaluation of mills was carried out in Sept/Oct 2008 based on the visits carried out - summarized
       observations as follows:
       Unga (Nairobi & Eldoret) are cleared, and two other millers had minor issues - TSS Millers (Mombasa) and
       Maize Milling (Eldoret), but remain options.
       Each of these mills is capable of producing over 150 Mt per 24hrs (900 per 6 day week) = 4 mills producing in
       total 3,600 Mt per week.

    Actions:
        Investigate possibility and cost of additional capacity in Kampala. Having a milling centre in Kampala is
        logistically efficient – however the costs can be high.
        Inquire how much is the excess capacity of Kenyan mills.
        Assess the possibility of increasing the milling capacity in Goma

Internal Transport:

   Commercial transport can be used inside DRC, but with MONUC escorts. Main constraints are:
       1) The insufficient provision of MONUC escorts and
       2) The extended delivery period.

Storage Capacity:

   ILS Storage Capacity inside DRC:
           GOMA:                 720 m²
           BENI:                 360 m²
           BUNIA:                240 m² (Dungu)

   WFP Storage Capacity inside DRC:
          GOMA:                 6,000 Mt
          BENI:                 1,800 Mt
          BUKAVU:               3,500 Mt
          UVIRA:                1,500 Mt

          NALUKONGO:            15,000 Mt
          TORORO:               15,000 Mt
          KIGALI:               10,000 Mt
          GISENYI:                1,800Mt
          ISAKA:                16,500Mt
