The Global Water Initiative (GWI) was an action-research and advocacy programme that ran from 2008-17. The project is now closed. This site is no longer being updated, but allows access to GWI outputs until 1 October 2020 when it will also close. After that date, information about the project and core GWI technical publications will continue to be available from the IIED website and Publications Library.
Establishment of the Joint Technical Commitee for the Sourou River (Mali/Burkina Faso)
The Joint Technical Committee formed by this agreement represents an official collaboration on water resource management between Mali and Burkina Faso. It is co-signed by two government ministers each representing their country, adding legal weight to IWRM projects in the cross-border Sourou river basin.
