The World Bank’s International Development Association approved a loan to NBA for a program of water resources development and sustainable management of ecosystems in the Niger Basin. Among existing hydro projects in the basin are 760-MW Kainji and 540-MW Jebba. (HydroWorld 7/23/09) Proposed projects include 125-MW Kandadji (HydroWorld 12/16/09) and 20-MW Taoussa.
