This significant achievement justifies the present study whose objective is to document the development process and the implementation of the Action Plan for IWRM of Burkina Faso so that the essential lessons learnt can contribute to the improvement of the development of the national action plans of IWRM in West Africa, and in the world.

Abstract

Burkina Faso is one of the few countries in West Africa, to have made significant progress in the IWRM process, with the development and implementation of her Action Plan for the Integrated Water Resources Management (PAGIRE), in accordance with the recommendations of the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in 2002. This significant achievement justifies the present study whose objective is to document the development process and the implementation of the Action Plan for IWRM of Burkina Faso so that the essential lessons learnt can contribute to the improvement of the development of the national action plans of IWRM in West Africa, and in the world. [authors abstract].
