Abstract : There are many challenges related to water in Africa: providing safe drinking water for all; developing food production without depleting water resources; and implementing water and energy-saving irrigation techniques, among others. These challenges can only be met by mobilising human, financial and technical resources in order to make the necessary investments and to maintain them overtime. (Résumé d'auteur)
