Current EU development policy provides a general frame and background that justifies a Nexus approach and methodology. Thus, the new European Consensus on Development: “Our World, our Dignity, our Future” (June 2017) emphasises an integrated approach to development and strongly supports the 2030 Agenda with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that were adopted in September 2015 as a global framework for sustainable development action. The 2030 Agenda itself emphasises an integrated approach that can facilitate a Nexus methodology.

Document published in 2011 by OSS (Sahel and Sahara Observatory), focused on the design and implementation of a hydrogeological model of the Iullemeden Aquifer System. The aquifer, extending through Mali, Niger and Nigeria, is one of the two outmost important groundwater systems in the Niger basin, with groundwater flowing mainly from north to the south.

Climate Hazards Group InfraRed Precipitation with Station data (CHIRPS) is a 30+ year quasi-global rainfall dataset. Spanning 50°S-50°N (and all longitudes), starting in 1981 to near-present, CHIRPS incorporates 0.05° resolution satellite imagery with in-situ station data to create gridded rainfall time series for trend analysis and seasonal drought monitoring. As of February 12th, 2015, version 2.0 of CHIRPS is complete and available to the public. More info:

Notez que ce document est interne au projet pour commentaires. Il restera ainsi jusqu'a sa version definitive.

Rapport d'HydroConseil sur l'Etat de Lieux du Bassin Versant de la Merkou.

Rapport preliminaire pour commentaires de la part des partenaires du projet MEKROU. Il y a donc:

- un document avec le rapport lui-meme

- un doucment avec les annexes des donnees mentionees dans le rapport ainsi que celles collectees dans le cadre du rapport.

Localisation des villages sélectionnés dans la partie  du bassin de la Mékrou situe au NIGER.

Je vous prie de trouver ci-joint une version encore provisionnelle de l’Atlas de Cartographie de Base du MEKROU pour le document d'Etat de Lieux du Basin de la MEKROU. Les cartes sont déjà finalisées mais nous sommes en train de les formater et commenter. Donc ce travail est encore en cours.
