2.5 Cameroon Waterways Assessment

With the exception of the Benué River, waterways navigation is not developed in Cameroon.

In 2017, a study was done on eight waterways and infrastructure investment should occur soon, though at the time of assessment major progress on this matter was not apparent:

  • River Wouri, between Yabassi and Douala for a length of 67 km
  • River Nyong, between Abong-Mbang and Mbalmayo, for 215 km
  • River Sanaga, from Edéa to Atlantic Ocean, for 60 km
  • River Benoué, starting from Lagdo Dam up to Nigeria border, representing 140 km
  • River Dja, section Ndongo - Moloundou, 116 km
  • River Ngoko, starting from Ndongo up to DRC border
  • River Sangha, from Libongo to Congo border
  • Finally River Benoué, section between Garoua port to the Nigeria border for 80 km.
