Project General Description

The PPF Fomi Multi-Purpose Dam Project was designed to enable the complementary studies (detailed engineering) of the Fomi Multi-Purpose Dam Project. This intervention will finance the detailed studies for the construction of a dam (a 2.9 billion m3 reservoir and a 2.3 billion m3 regulation volume) equipped with a hydroelectric power plant (90 MW) to supply Guinea and Mali and the development of 3500 ha of irrigated areas in Guinea and Mali. The main expected outputs are: (i) a final ODA study report; (ii) a final ESIA report including an Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP); (iii) a comprehensive resettlement plan (CRP) validated by stakeholders; (iv) a climate change vulnerability analysis; (v) an institutional and cost-benefit sharing study report; (vi) tender documents for the works; (vii) a monitoring and evaluation manual and its implementation mechanism; (viii) a report on the configuration of the management software and the implementation of the management system; and (ix) two audit reports.

Project Objectives

The objective of the intervention is to allow the completion of the complementary (detailed technical) studies of the Project. The objective of the Fomi Multipurpose Dam Project is to strengthen the resilience of populations and to contribute to the regeneration of river ecosystems in a context of climate change. The specific objectives of the Project are: (i) to regulate the regime of the Niger River and ensure a good ecological status, particularly in the wetlands downstream of the dam; (ii) to develop irrigated agriculture in Guinea and Mali; (iii) to develop fisheries and fish farming; (iv) to develop navigation and ecotourism; and (v) to generate electricity.


The intervention will mainly benefit the authorities in Guinea.
