Dear Centres of Excellence, Representatives of regional institutions and Partners,

We hope this email find you all in good health.

 

The Mékrou River basin, one of the six tributaries of the middle Niger basin, is shared between three countries (Benin, Burkina Faso and Niger) and is characterised by the underdevelopment of its water infrastructure. This presents significant social, economic, environmental and political risks. Furthermore the region's weak capacity to buffer the effects of hydrological variability generates uncertainty and risks for economic activities.
