The Promise of a Better Future for the People of the Niger Basin

The Niger River Basin is an extensive web of underground and surface waters that joins nine riparian countries in West Africa around one precious resource. Over 130 million people depend on the water and ecosystems of the Basin for their livelihoods and survival. In early 2015, driven by the urgency to abate the impacts of climate change, the Niger Basin countries with the support of the Niger Basin Authority, the World Bank, and the African Development Bank crafted a Climate Resilience Investment Plan. This plan will enable people living around the Niger Basin to enjoy better water quality, safer crops and increased access to electricity. Communities that are vulnerable to extreme weather and rising sea level will also be safer.
