  • Example of multiple use of a water source in the Black Volta basin at Bagri Zongo - Ghana

    Global Water Initiative: Ghana

    GWI Ghana's 2008 baseline study of water and sanitation provision in the Upper West Region showed that vulnerable populations had limited access to drinking water (approximately 50% coverage). There was low hygiene awareness among schools and communities, as well as low sanitation coverage and usage (more than 90% of local people were defecating in the open).

  • Example of bucket and pulley system on a traditional well - Senegal

    Global Water Initiative: Senegal

    Our work in Senegal focused on supporting smallholders who are farming, transforming and trading rice in the irrigated area around the Niandouba and Confluent dams in the Anambé river basin. We also looked at the overall economic impact of the dams, both in terms of their overall return on investment, and in terms of how they improve the livelihoods of the farming communities.
