Boundary making is an expensive exercise. The need for proper budgeting is paramount if the exercise is to succeed. Detailed estimates of costs in order to arrive at budget figures are highly desirable. Members of a Boundary Commission may typically be given the responsibility for producing such estimates. The need for accurate costing will become even more accurate when dispute resolution processes are invoked. Costs are doubtless a factor deterring many African states with limited resources from addressing their delimitation and demarcation needs. The costs, however, continue to rise as the demarcation continues and the funds collected diminish in value due to devaluation of the currencies as well as rises in costs of services and equipment. Land boundary demarcation may be equally prohibitive. Acquisition of satellite imagery, ground surveys, mapping and erection of boundary pillars would require immense sums to accomplish. In many cases both land and maritime issues are at stake from litigation through to implementation.
