This project set out to establish a new five-year plan for the VBA (Volta Basin Authority). This consisted of drawing up new strategic guidelines which gave rise to an action plan intended to strengthen the VBA’s role as a transboundary authority. The action plan included various institutional and technical initiatives, as well as focusing on governance and efforts to support and strengthen the VBA’s staff. Technical actions included water information systems, project management for infrastructure, and comprehensive studies. The action plan also sought to secure financing for the VBA (budget and treasury management).
