Bénéfices

The overall goal of the proposed Project is to contribute to economic growth, reduced poverty, improved health, better living conditions, and enhanced food and energy security for the people in the Songwe Basin as well as economic development of the two countries. Its objectives are to assist the two countries creating a long-term strategic framework, investment plans, and enabling environment for basin-wide socio-economic development based on joint management of the shared waters. The Project also provides detailed designs and other preparations for capital investments in the order of Euro 400 million, including a multi-purpose dams, and associated hydropower schemes, irrigated agriculture, river stabilisation, flood control, fisheries development, water supply and roads. Two other dams in the river basin will be designed to feasibility level under this study and their detailed designs will be undertaken later on, under the implementation of the Songwe River Basin Development Programme (SRBDP).
