Bank seeks water atlas of ‘watertower of West Africa’

The World Bank invites expressions of interest from consultants to develop a water atlas of the resources of Guinea’s Fouta Djallon Highland, dubbed the “watertower of West Africa” since it is the source of several major rivers in the region. Responses are due October 15.

Fouta Djallon is the source of hydropower-rich rivers including the Gambia, Bafing/Senegal, Koliba, Konkoure and Niger.

The World Bank seeks consultants to develop a water atlas of Fouta Djallon presenting the state of its natural resources, particularly water resources, and their uses, to illustrate issues involved in their management. It also seeks support of the validation of a draft Directive on Shared Water Resource Management in West Africa and evaluation of greater involvement of river basin organizations in regional integrated water resources management.

Expressions of interest in English are due October 15, electronically via the World Bank’s eConsultant2 Internet site, A solicitation notice is available on the website under Business Opportunities, Solicitation No. 1200591.
