Climate, Environment and Biodiversity
In Benin climate change is leading to shifting rainy seasons, decreasing the availability of water and increasing the risk of flooding. On top of inadequate access to drinking water and sanitation, these changes necessitate the need to manage water resources efficiently.
This project of the GIZ and the Ministry for Water and Mines aims to foster integrated water resources management at catchment and sub catchment level, to improve access for an ever-growing population to safe drinking water and sustainable sanitation and wastewater treatment systems.
Over the timespan of a little more than a year, together with the help of our consortium partner Cosinus Conseils SARL our team of long- and short-term experts will provide organizational and technical support for national institutions, support the creation and management of local water committees, improve early warning systems for flooding and conduct a study on climate resilient urban sanitation.
