The NBA has launched an initiative to identify and mobilize self-sustainable financial resources to complement donors and member states funding and carry out new missions. The mechanism chosen is a small fee based on the user-pays principle enshrined in the Niger Basin Water Charter that entered into force in 2010: this entails obtaining from the producers of hydropower of the basin, financial contribution in exchange for hydrological services that only the NBA is able to provide basin-wide (flow forecasting, etc).
