Abstract

This case narrates the story to connect landlocked Botswana's rich coalfields with the Namibian coast. In 2005, the Governments of Botswana and Namibia started discussions to bring forth a 1,500-kilometre railway that traverses the two countries to the Port of Walvis Bay. Ten years and many lengthy negotiations later, the Trans-Kalahari Railway (TKR) Project Management Office (PMO) finally opened in Windhoek in April 2015. The project is expected to cost USD14.2B and will be developed via a public-private partnership approach based on a DBOOT contractual arrangement whereby a developer undertakes the financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance of the project. This case illustrates the complexities of managing a multinational project. After much slower than expected progress, a decision must be made to continue or abandon the project.
