“ In the Republic of Guinea we are working on a hybrid project that combines smart mining practices and the regeneration of the environment! ”



The main purpose of the project will involve the removal of accumulated and unwanted sediment from the bottom of and the banks of the river and coastal areas. Such sediment has negative repercussions as the riverbed becomes shallower, affecting its commercial applications (maritime traffic, fishing, farming), thus halting supply chains for basic resources as well as socio-economic activities that evolve the overall wealth of a country. Additionally, the unwanted sediment increases the water salinity and erodes the banks, presenting an environmental hazard for both wildlife and people, such as flash floods.



The rehabilitation of the banks of the River Niger, along with the securitisation of the Niger Basin against flooding will lead to the creation of eco-friendly artisanal, agricultural and industrial activities offering a wide range of employment opportunities for local populations, especially for Women and the youth. This project is one of the few being carried out where the conglomeration of social, ecological and economic matters is equally considered.
