Eau, genre et développement durable :Expériences de la coopération française en Afrique subsaharienne

La gestion de l’eau reste un des défis majeurs de l’humanité et la coopération internationale française a de bonnes raisons d’y consacrer une part importante de ses
moyens, particulièrement en Afrique subsaharienne.

Les enjeux qui s’y rapportent sont, en effet, nombreux, car au delà des conflits d’usages ou d’intérêts, l’eau organise et rythme la vie.

IDDRI Issue Brief, Nov 2016: Innovating to sustain biodiversity conservation in African protected areas: funding and incentives. Insights from 3 countries

This study aims to unpack the potential benefits and risks of innovative financial mechanisms at work in Africa through the analysis of three case studies: an environmental trust fund created to finance the network of protected areas in Côte d’Ivoire; a conservation concession agreement (and thereafter a REDD-related private non-profit company) in the Gola Rainforest in Sierra Leone; and a biodiversity stewardship and tax incentive approach developed in South Africa.


Access to modern energy services is a prerequisite for sustainable development. Namibia has made good progress in electrification, and major grid lines can be found in all provinces of the country. However, rural electrification is still at a low level and access to clean energy sources is limited. According to the Rural Electricity Distribution Master Plan (REDMP), 61 per cent of localities were without access to electricity in 2010.

Regional workshop for West and Central Africa I LIMBE – CAMEROON: 24–25 February 2016

The often neglected role of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLCs)—the people often most heavily impacted by wildlife poaching and associated crime—was the focus of a meeting held in Limbe in February 2016.

This meeting aimed to provide a platform for those at the grassroots level to speak up to protect their livelihoods and their futures from the treats posed by illegal wildlife trade.

Local people and government working together to manage natural resources: Lessons from the Lake Victoria Basin

Seeking to conserve sites of biological and ecological importance outside the protected area network, conservation organizations are increasingly working with local communities, the original and ultimate stewards of the sites. In most cases, local people are aware of environmental problems; with training and capacity building they become enthusiastic protectors of critical natural sites. Donor-funded projects to sup- port local community groups, however, last only a few years.
