Hydrological flow situation in the Niger basin during the month of March was characterized by a continued low flow in the Inland Delta and the Midlle Niger. Furthermore, dry flow situation continues at the Upper and the Lower Niger.

Releases of water reservoir from Selingué Dam in Mali and Kainji Dam in Nigeria continues.

The data used for the various analyses below came from Hydrological observation networks of the National Hydrological Services and Dam Authorities of member countries.

The flow analysis situation was carried out by dividing the basin into four sub-catchments also represented with reference gauging stations as follows: Upper Niger at Koulikoro (Mali), Inland Delta at Dire (Mali), Middle Niger in Niamey (Niger) and Lower Niger at Lokoja (Nigeria) as shown in figure 1.
