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.
