Hydropower will play an increasing role in meeting the growing demand for electricity in Cameroon with the Sanaga River Basin being the primary water source in the country. Through a combination of technical assistance, advisory services, expert support, studies, and analyses, the project will provide support to ensure that the Government of Cameroon has the capacity to develop its hydropower resources in an integrated and sustainable manner, that a hydroelectric site on the Sanaga River is identified and that the private sector is engaged for its development. The project will further ensure that Sanaga River Basin hydroelectric resources are developed in line with international best practice. The generation and sharing of technical and regulatory knowledge with support of the project (e.g., on hydrology risks, dam safety, reservoir management, cascade investment optimization, and competitively-bid concessions) will bring the GoC and the private sector on equal footing to identify and distribute risks in the development of the Basin’s potential.
