Hydrological study of the Sourou basin, Mali

Document language: 
French

The Malian Sourou basin has great natural and economic importance, with much potential for ample water provision. But despite this potential, there are still several challenges around water quality and the effective management of water resources. Through this hydrological study, GWI built up a detailed ecological and social picture of the Sourou basin, noting the communes where intervention was most required.
