Niger Basin Authority (NBA): Flood control in the Niger Basin

The project for support to the Niger Basin Authority (NBA) by the German International Cooperation Agency for Development (GIZ) on flood control ends in early 2016.
 
The Deltares / UNESCO-IHE / IOWater group, in charge of the project implementation, has carried out:
  •  Mapping of flood risk in the basin and in pilot zones (Niamey in Niger and Malanville in Benin);
  •  Development of a flood forecasting model;
  •  Improvement of hydrological data management (Niger HYCOS);
  •  Improvement of the warning system.
 
Training courses are also provided by the group to strengthen the abilities of the NBA teams.
