Press Release
Tuesday, 03 May 2016 16:43

The Niger Basin Authority (NBA) is made up of 9 member States: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Niger, Nigeria and Chad. The total population of the basin is about 130 Million inhabitants, 70% of which are rural, with a 50-year life expectancy. In view of its ecological and socio-economic significance, the Niger Basin is an essential asset for the development of the sub-region. But today, the Basin’ development perspectives are threatened by the effects of climate change which affect both ecosystems and populations. Faced with this situation, NBA is implementing significant projects and programmes for the benefit of populations.

It is within that framework that NBA is organizing a meeting of the partners of one of the most important Projects and Programmes, namely the Integrated Programme for Development and Adaptation to Climate Change (PIDACC), in Abidjan on 1st June 2016. The programme includes three action components:

• Restoring and conserving the Niger Basin’s Ecosystems (example : claiming 121,500 ha of degraded land);

• Improving populations’ living conditions and implementing support measures in the context of climate change (example: construction or rehabilitation  of 161 reservoirs, ponds, pastoral wells and boreholes);

• Building the capacities of actors responsible for managing natural resources at the local, national and regional levels (example : building the capacity of 50 fisher organizations and fishing product processing groups).

The cost of PIDACC/NB is estimated at 273,792 Million US Dollars, or 175, 492 Billion CFA francs.

The Objective of this important meeting is to mobilize the financing needed for implementing the programme. Prior to that event, there will be an Extraordinary Session of the NBA Council of Ministers scheduled from 26th to 31th May 2016.
