Water protection : a major challenge in Africa

Because water protection is a major challenge in Africa, the Sahara and Sahel Observatory is committed to the sustainable management of this fundamental resource. 

As part of its 2030 strategy and through its water component, the OSS works with its partners to contribute to meeting the water needs of populations and to the sustainable management of the resources.

Its action aims in particular to:

  • Improve and strengthen knowledge of groundwater and surface water resources;
  • Contribute to the establishment of planning tools;
  • Encourage and support integrated, coordinated and sustainable water resources management policies;
  • Contribute to the improvement and sustainability of the shared water resources governance.

We all have the responsibility to value the importance of water and to take action to preserve such a vital resource.

Together, we need to act to safeguard it.
