THE GAMBIA RIVER BASIN ORGANIZATION PROJECT (OMVG)

The Gambia River Basin Organisation Project (OMVG) was pioneered by the two Head of States, the Late Sir Dawda Kairaba Jawara of The Gambia and the Late Leopold Sedat Senghore of Senegal. The two countries signed the agreement on 11 June 1976 so as  to share common resources from the energy sector through River Gambia.

The two leaders later strengthened the organisation to include Guinea Conakry and Guinea Bissau. During the process the leaders realized the vision of the former leaders to be practicalized into a sub regional energy project for member states to gain 50% energy efficiency target by 2030.
