Water resources project sought for upper Nile lakes

Nile Equatorial Lakes states invite expressions of interest from consultants to identify a multipurpose water resources development project, including hydropower, in the eastern Africa basin of Lakes Edward, Albert, and George. Responses are due June 24.

The Nile Equatorial Lakes Subsidiary Action Program (NELSAP) of the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI) recruited consultants in May to conduct an independent review of environmental and social studies of the 60-MW Rusumo Falls hydroelectric project on the Kagera River.

NELSAP states include Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Kenya, Rwanda, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda. Lakes Edward, Albert, and George are part of the upper White Nile system in Uganda and DR Congo.

NELSAP currently invites expressions of interest to identify a multipurpose water resources development project to improve food security, reduce flow variability, contribute to socio-economic development, and address watershed degradation issues. The 10-month contract is to include a water resources assessment and preparation of a multipurpose investment strategy and bankable project. Uses are to include watershed and flood management, hydroelectric power, water supply, irrigation, wildlife, navigation, wetlands management, recreation, and water quality.

Expressions of interest in English are due by 10 a.m. June 24 to the address below, labeled "Expression of Interest for Identification of a Multipurpose Water Resources Development Project in the Lakes Edward, Albert, and George Basin."
