PEPP (Port Efficiency and Public Private Capacity in Ghana)

The maritime sector is a driver of industrialization globally. However, the relationship between maritime development and industrialization remains endogenous and deserves further consideration. Tema Port in Ghana is a unique site for investigating the challenges and opportunities for national, international, and multinational public-private cooperation on building capacity for implementing and enforcing international maritime regulations that contribute to drive economic development in Ghana. PEPP focuses on implicit and explicit alliances between public and private entities in shaping capacity development (CD) programs as a result of a constantly changing port service economy. PEPP will critically investigate the aims, effects, and politics of CD with specific focus on continuities and ruptures in conditions for CD when moving from aid-to-trade, specifically seeking to answer: how capacity development in and around Tema Port can contribute to sustainable industrialization in Ghana, when Denmark supports Ghana beyond aid by prioritizing trade relations while phasing out official development assistance?
