Project

This project in partnership with SHER plans to develop a legal framework for the fi rst agricultural  water  users’  organizations  (AWUOs)  and  a  maintenance  fund,  in  Sourou  Valley  in Burkina Faso. This requires making their implantation in the fi eld operational with the various parties involved.

 

The study phase of the project came to a close in December 2011, and notably focused on the missions, roles and responsibilities of AWUOs, their memorandums of understanding and by-laws, and ability to pay. During 2012 and 2013, the WUAs were set up as well as the O&M unit. Associations were trained in associations’ duties and obligations and in their management.
