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 This site is no longer being updated, but allows access to GWI outputs until 1 October 2020 when it will also close.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.
This research was conducted as part of the Global Water Initiative in West Africa in collaboration with the Directorate General of the Fomi dam. GWI West Africa is implemented by IUCN and IIED and funded by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation.
