Local Water Committees are a key link in the chain of governance of water resources, providing a front line response to resolving any issues arising locally.

This report documents GWI’s experience of setting up a pilot Local Water Committee in Madaoua, in the sub-basin of the Tarka Valley in Niger. We chose this area because it lies at the heart of the most vulnerable part of the Tarka Valley flood plain.

Communication is often poor between local people and the officials in charge of managing rural water resources. Municipal Water Days (MWDs) aim to bridge this gap and foster mutual understanding and collaboration.

The roles and responsibilities of each key member of the Sourou Cross-border Integrated Resource Management Committee (CGTS) are outlined in this document.
