Infrastructure Interconnections in Africa

ImageHere is a crazy idea, why did we stop building canals? Look at all those potential waterways (which might prove cheaper in the long run than roads). And don’t tell me its all about rapids and waterfalls, those can be overcome.

Also, notice how “landlockedness” is not just about national boundaries but about access to the sea and transport infrastructure.
