The NBA was assigned the mission to promote cooperation between member countries and ensure integrated development of the basin by developing resources in the fields of energy, hydraulics, agriculture, livestock, fishing and fish farming, forestry and logging, transportation, industry and communication.
The NBA has started the transition to the Programme Approach. To this end, an Institutional and Organizational audit was carried out in 2016 and completed in 2019. This audit specified the products and services expected of the NBA and a draft organizational chart was proposed by a regional workshop held in Niamey from March 12 to 14, 2020, pursuant to Resolution No.4 of the Extraordinary Session of the Council of Ministers held on November 26, 2019 in Abuja, Federal Republic of Nigeria.
