Hydrological component of the second phase of the Hadejia-Nguru Wetlands Conservation Project (HNWCP), Northern Nigeria
The research included (i) three periods of two months wet season fieldwork in Nigeria undertaking field monitoring of wetland hydrological processes, (ii) development of a digital hydrological model of the river basin and its wetlands for use in planning the development of the region's water resources, (iii) production of a user friendly, menu driven graphical user interface for the model, (iv) running training courses for the model in Nigeria for governmental and non-governmental organisations, (v) innovative analysis of daily flow data and derivation of artificial flood hydrographs for dam releases, (vi) advising water resource managers and policy makers on water resource developments in the river basin. This research was undertaken as part of a cross-disciplinary team aimed at the sustainable development of the internationally important wetlands that include Nigeria’s first Ramsar site. Funding source: International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).
