The hydrological flow situation of the Niger basin during the month of February was marked by a low flow in all the compartments of the Basin.
While the low water level continues in the Upper and Lower Niger sub-basins, there was also a decline flow in the Inner Delta and Middle Niger during the first decade of February 2023 due to decline of Guinean flood.
The Selingué dams in Mali and Kainji in Nigeria have begun gradual releases to support downstream flows.
The data used for the various analyses below came from hydrological observation networks of the National Hydrological Services and Dam Authorities of nine (9) member countries of Niger Basin Authority. (NBA)
The flow analysis situation was carried out by dividing the basin into three (4) sub-catchments also represented with reference gauging stations as follows: Upper Niger at Koulikoro (Mali), Inland Delta at Dire (Mali) and Middle Niger in Niamey (Niger) and Lower Niger (Lokoja) Nigeria
