The project for capacity building of the Volta Basin Authority (VBA) is funded by the European Union (ACP-EU Water Facility), the Seine-Normandy Water Agency (AESN) and the French Development Agency (AFD). Since 2012, INBO has been implementing the project, which aims to build the capacity of : l The Stakeholders Forum for Basin Development, an advisory body of VBA ; l The Experts’ Committee, VBA executive body, l The Executive Directorate. The project also allowed the participation of the VBA Executive Director in INBO World General Assembly held in Fortaleza, Brazil, from 12 to 16 August 2013. At the same time, an expert from the Adour- Garonne Water Agency presented the dialogue process in the river basin and made recommendations for the functioning of the Stakeholders’ Forum and an IOWater expert led a session on the preparation of the Master Plan for Water Development and Management. Particular attention will be paid to information and communication to the general public about the VBA activities.
