The partnership desires to tackle severe problems of annual floods, massive erosion, waste disposal and absolute poverty. The intention is to quickly resolve the issue of perennial flood, erosion, sanitation, and waste management.

Concept Stage: Specific projects are identified and conceptualized. There exists a basic economic model.
Omoku and the adjoining Orashi rivers are the livewire of Omoku-Aligu-Kreigani inhabitants. They provided fish, fishing, construction, bathing and other sporting activities all valued at a time to the tune of €15 million per annum. However, with its degradation and pollution as enumerated above, this huge income was lost. This stretch also lost a huge tract of land to erosion. Land is greatly valued here and reclaiming the lost land will boost great economic development through reconstruction of houses and housing of a number of homeless and hopeless individuals. But perhaps the greatest impact could be the reduction of water borne diseases through the halting of the seasonal floods, the provision of toilets, management of solid waste, storm water and bathing water. The inhabitants due to lack of modern infrastructural amenities, lack of decent sanitation and the likes are degradingly deep diving into abject suffering with no hope of raising their heads above waters.
The intended beneficiaries are the Ogba people of rivers state, Nigeria with a target population of (2006) population of 283,294.
Healthy Economics for the community
i. There are no negative risks, constraints and dependencies and there will be none of them against the counter party, as far as this life saving economic project is concerned because of the structures under point 1(d) of previous posting of this file.
Because this particular project is of ultimate importance to the continued life existence of the society as a whole, we therefore see no negative political impact, irrespective of political changes or interactions.
