S’engager résolument vers une gestion améliorée des ressources en eau au Burkina Faso


The Government of Burkina Faso has undertaken to put into place a national programme of ‘integrated water resources management’ – or ‘la GIRE’ in French – in line with its commitment under Goal 6 of the Sustainable Development Goals, namely to, by 2030, ‘implement integrated water resources management at all levels’ in the country – down to individual river basins and localities.

This French-language policy brief analyses how far that process has reached to-date and the significant work that still needs to be done. Policy and decision makers are also presented with a set of practical recommendations to fill current implementation gaps: functioning of a properly integrated system for assessing  water allocation and infrastructure options as part of a long-term vision of water management in changing climatic conditions.
