Director’s speech

To respond to the need to preserve and maintain the water resources in quantity and quality, Burkina Faso adopted in 1998 the approach of integrated water resources management (IWRM). This is evidenced by the adoption of the document "Policy and water strategies" and Law No. 002-2001 / AN of 8 February 2001 on the management of water. As part of the implementation strategy, five water agencies, with the status of a public interest group, were created. The Water Agency of Gourma was born January 24, 2011 with the signing of the security agreement.
Welcome to the website of the Water Agency of Gourma (AEG).
This site was created with the aim to make available information on water resources of the Agency’s jurisdiction area, but also in order to give visibility to the activities we undertake.
With a young and multidisciplinary team, we work on the field through:
- The establishment and support Local Committees of Water (LCW);
- Water resources protection by delimitation of servitude bands around the strategic water reservoirs
- Bank protection by realization of reforestation campaign
- Recovery of Financial Contribution of Water (CFE)
We work in close collaboration with the population as called the IWRM approach, and are supported and accompanied in our actions by national and international scope partners.
For a better understanding of the issues related to water management, I invite you to look over thematic articles we have published. You will find in our different sections, statistics and map data on the resources of our area of expertise, but also the texts and laws governing our actions and generally water resource management in Burkina Faso. We will certainly enrich these topics.
Hoping that this site will meet your expectations, thank you for your confidence and wish you a good visit.
