Pastoral Water and Resource Management Project in Sahelian Areas
The project contributed to reducing vulnerability among the target populations, for example by securing transhuman pastoral systems, together with measures for hydraulic works management, conflict prevention and herder mobility. In particular, the project’s relevance is attributable to the great economic value of the livestock sector, which is the country’s second source of revenue, after oil.
The project encountered several problems during implementation, including the withdrawal of co-financing by the French Development Agency and the Swiss Agency for Cooperation and Development, and significant delays as a result of cumbersome procurement procedures. Despite these difficulties, the project managed to recover and to meet most of the targets set.
