Managing port – city interfaces is a complex issue that typically changes over time in different development phases for a specific port and city development, like in Mombasa. There is often an asymmetric distribution of costs and benefits, where a port largely benefits a hinterland area and not the surrounding area suffering from many of the costs associated with a transit oriented port. This appears to be the case for Mombasa, Kenya. The port contributes positively to employment and business generation in Mombasa County, but it also generates local negative effects such as air pollution from land and marine transport, noise, congestion and land take. This mismatch between the distribution of costs and benefits led the County Government to request the World Bank to undertake this study. The study was supported by the Urban Logistics and Port city Development window of the Multi-Donor Trust Fund for Sustainable Logistics (MDTF-SL) Trust Fund.1 The overall objective of the study is to identify actionable policy options for the City of Mombasa to both reduce the negative externalities, and increase potential positive externalities, created as a result of the current location and activities of the port of Mombasa. The immediate objective of the study is met by performing three tasks: 1. Conduct a literature study on experiences and successful policies on dealing with port – city interfaces; 2. Review and present the current situation in respect of the port – city interface in Mombasa; and 3. Develop a data driven decision support tool and to illustrate the impacts of different defined policy options for improving the port city interface in Mombasa. This report presents the findings of the study, and presents international experiences on port – city interface, together with the situation in Mombasa specifically, the developed decision support tool and the impacts of a number of policy options on the port - city interface in Mombasa. The report is intended to contribute to an increased understanding of the problem of the port – city interface and how to facilitate dialogues between stakeholders and utilize synergies.
