7120. Inga Basse Chute and Mid Size Hydropower Development TA Project - DRC

The Directorate-General for International Cooperation (DGIS) of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs requested the DSU to advise on the accuracy of information underlying decision-making on a large hydropower project in the DRC. This project is the Inga Basse Chute and Mid Size Hydropower Development Technical Assistance Project, the majority of which will be financed by the World Bank. The DSU's advice, leading to some critical questions which will be taken into account in the project, was used by DGIS as input for the World Bank board meeting in which the project was approved.
