Niger River’s local floods, which began in June and July in the upper basin in Guinea and Mali, and in mid-July in Niamey, continues. It is manifested by significant and sometimes quick variations in Niger River and its tributaries’ water level. These variations have been more significant since mid-August 2019. The NBA Executive Secretariat, based on the availability of hydrological data, prepares flow forecasts on Niger River and its tributaries.
Data available in the regional hydrological database were used for simulations to develop the following flow forecasts and analyses. The unavailability of data at the regional level on Lower Niger and Benue does not allow to make forecasts on this important portion of Niger River.
