LThe international community is increasingly concerned with the relationship between global migration flows and environmental disturbances, including the degradation of ecosystems and the effects of climate change. Indeed, this relationship has been proven and the links between these two phenomena have become a major political issue on a planetary scale. With a growing world population and deteriorating environmental conditions, the challenges related to migration are likely to increase in the years ahead of us.See the details
The present advocacy was developed by the Sahara and Sahel Observatory (OSS), in collaboration with the French Development Agency (AFD), as part of their joint capacity and knowledge building actions, and aims to support decision-makers in understanding the adaptation concept besides its relevance in combating the climate change effects. It precisely focuses on how adaptation measures could impact ecosystem restoration in the Maghreb and Sahel regions.See the details
This work comes after two previous editions of monographs on water resources published by the Sahara and Sahel Observatory in 1995 and 2001.
It is a summary of useful data and information for decision-makers and managers, but also to every single person interested in water issues.
It also provides avenues for reflection and guidance to the different and relevant operators, in order to improve the management and development of water resources, in the area of intervention of the Sahara and Sahel Observatory.See the details
