This Report presents the detailed assessment prepared by the Study Team for the Nauru Port Pre-Feasibility Study.

Although potential options to upgrade the port facilities at Nauru have been previously investigated by various development partners, no improvements at the port have been progressed in recent years and the state and operation of the existing port facility continues to present occupational health and safety issues, capacity limitations, and challenges to the import and export of goods and cargo.

The Government of Nauru requested technical assistance from the Pacific Region Infrastructure Facility (PRIF) to investigate feasible options for improvement of the port facilities in the short to medium, in order to progress a solution to address these challenges in the coming years.
