The Kandadji Programme Support Project is in keeping with the 2017-2021 Economic and Social Development Plan (ESDP) of Niger. The Kandadji Programme is a key component in regulating the waters of the Niger River and is one of the priorities of the Sustainable Development Action Plan (SDAP) for the Niger Basin. The program’s objective is to regenerate the river ecosystems and increase agricultural and energy production through the construction of a regulatory dam on the Niger River. The project will focus on implementation of the civil works on the dam and its ancillary structures, implementation of the Resettlement Action Plan in Phase A, implementation of the updated ESMP as well as project management and coordination. It will be implemented over a six-year period (2019-2025). The project will incorporate gender and youth employment in a crosscutting manner in all its components.
The project objective is to contribute to poverty reduction and the regeneration of river ecosystems. The specific objectives of this key, multi-sector and multipurpose project are to: (i) regulate the low-water period flow rate to ensure ecosystem regeneration and water security; (ii) sustainably increase agricultural and animal production through irrigation control and the rationalisation of natural resource development; and (iii) increase the electricity access rate for people living in rural, peri-urban and urban areas, in several towns and localities in Niger.
The direct project area covers the Tillabéry region where the dam site is located, Niamey Urban Community and Dosso Region. It has an estimated population of 3 million, 1.53 million of whom are women.
