      The Niger River Basin, home to million people, is a vital yet complex asset for West and Central Africa. It is the continent's third largest river basin, traversing nine countries--Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Cote d'Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Niger, and Nigeria. The River embodies both these nations' livelihoods and their geopolitics.5/5(1). Niger River, principal river of western Africa. With a length of 2, miles (4, km), it is the third longest river in Africa, after the Nile and the Congo. The Niger is believed to have been named by the Greeks. Along its course it is known by several names. These include the Joliba (Malinke.

    Africa - Niger River Basin Management Project (English) Abstract. The objective of the Niger River Basin Management Project for Africa is to strengthen the institutional framework for regional cooperation in water resources in the Niger River Basin. There are two components to the project, the first component being. The integrated river basin development is a long term process and must be based on conditions and realities that exist in the basin rather than copy existing models in other basins. The paper concludes that the Nile basin has all the potential for integrated development for the transformation of the basin societies and their well-being.

    The Niamey Act related to Navigation and economic Cooperation between the countries of the Niger Basin was signed on Octo and was replaced by Niamey Agreement related to the River Niger Commission and to Navigation and transportation on the Niger River which was signed on Novem The Niger River (/ ˈ n aɪ dʒ ər /; French: (le) fleuve Niger, pronounced [(lə) flœv niʒɛʁ]) is the principal river of West Africa, extending about 4, km (2, mi).Its drainage basin is 2,, km 2 (, sq mi) in area. Its source is in the Guinea Highlands in southeastern runs in a crescent through Mali, Niger, on the border with Benin and then through Nigeria.

River Basin Development Authorities in Nigeria are government agencies involved in the management of water resources for agriculture and other uses. Each authority operates in an assigned geo-morphological and political boundary and work to improve agriculture and rural development through irrigation, control of river pollution and also to assist farmers in processing food crops.

Formation. Inspired by the Tennessee Valley Authority, the organisation was founded in as the River Niger 21 Novemberit was refounded as the Niger Basin Authority. Purpose. The Niger Basin Authority defines its purpose as the promotion of cooperation among member countries to ensure integrated development of resources.

Nigeria: Benefits and River Basin Development Planning and Management “EZENWEANI Raymond Sunday. ABSTRACT: River basin is defined as an area of land drained by a river and its tributaries. There are over eighty major rivers in Nigeria and the biggest among them are the river Niger and Benue.

4 Cooperative Development of the Niger River Basin: Criteria for Success book (chapters 1–3) is a unique and essential compilation of technical infor- complex interrelated dynamics of the Niger River Basin and to promote integrated water resources management.

The Programme for Integrated Development and Climate Change Adaptation in the Niger Basin (PIDACC/BN) is justified by the need to promote sustainable social development, protect the large water infrastructure in the Basin and the main ecosystems of the Niger River, and consolidate the good results of the Niger Basin Silting Control Programme (NBSCP).

How can food insecurity be tackled while protecting the environment in the Malian part of the Niger River Basin. It is the question that seeks to answer the Integrated Programme for Development and Adaptation to Climate Change in the Niger Basin (Pidacc/BN) which was launched on February 4, in Bamako, the capital of Mali.

This programme will address these drivers by implementing a series of integrated and comprehensive actions that reduce the silting of the Niger River, improve natural resources management and enhance the population’s ability to adapt to climate change.

It also includes some mitigation activities, including through forestry and land use. The Niger River basin The Niger basin is a vital and complex hydrological asset for West and part of Central Africa (Andersen et al., ).

With its 4, km, the Niger River is the continent’s third longest river. It traverses no less than nine countries, and touches the life of around million people that live in the basin.

A common denominator of institutional arrangements is determined, from which developing countries in particular could benefit with regard to the introduction and establishment of systems of integrated river basin management.

Sample competencies for effective functioning of river basin and sub-basin organisations are identified and described. concept of integrated river basin development, and describes the evolution of techniques which have led to the feasibility of such development, and the chal­ lenge which confronts the world in this respect.

The following chapter deals with the major steps to be taken once an integrated development programme is envisaged.

The Niger Basin Authority. Originally called ‘Niger River Commission’ upon its creation inthe Niger Basin Authority (NBA), established in November with headquarters in Niamey, is composed of nine countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Niger, Nigeria and Chad).

The Niger River Basin (NRB) in West and Central Africa covers a total area of million km2 and its active basin is home to over million people throughout nine countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Mali, Niger, and Nigeria.

All 9 riparian states are in the bottom third of the countries according to the UNDP’s Human Development Index (), with 5 in. Functions: As provided in the Convention, the NBA’s purpose is to promote cooperation among the Member States and to ensure an integrated development of the Niger Basin in the fields of energy, water resources, agriculture, animal husbandry, fishing.

At the request of the countries, the Bank in initiated the preparation of the Programme for Integrated Development and Adaptation to Climate Change in the Niger Basin (PIDACC), the overall objective of which is to contribute to improving the resilience of the people and ecosystems of the Niger River Basin through sustainable natural.

In this paper the importance of political factors in river basin planning is discussed, and planning in. This paper examines the implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in the Cross river basin, Nigeria.

The Cross River Basin Development Authority (CRBDA) was established in with a mandate for integrated development, using the abundant water resources available in the region. Thirty years after the creation of the CRBDA, there is still a large gap between the original. Project General Description.

The Programme for Integrated Development and Climate Change Adaptation in the Niger Basin (PIDACC) is justified by the need to promote sustainable social development, protect the large water infrastructure in the Basin and the main ecosystems of the Niger River, and consolidate the good results of the Niger Basin Silting Control Programme (NBSCP).

Development of the Niger River Basin The PIDACC/BN also plans to exploit the Niger River through the rehabilitation and construction of water reservoirs for plantation irrigation.

The Niger Basin, being a large area for the breeding of ruminants (cattle, goats and sheep), the project will also allow the rehabilitation and construction of.Nearly two million people depend on the waters of the Upper Niger River and seasonal wetlands in Mali’s Inner Delta.

The delta directly supports them with freshwater, fish, pasture and fertile land for rice paddies and other crop production.

The Upper Niger River is heterogeneous society composed of several ethnic groups, who make their living from livestock keeping, agriculture and fishing.
