Synthèse d'analyse des connaissances, des outils et des capacités pour la sécurisation foncière des terres agricoles pour les populations affectées par le barrage de Fomi
This is a synthesis of the GWI West Africa working paper entitled "Connaissances, outils et capacités pour la sécurisation foncière des populations affectées par le barrage de Fomi". It summarises the main conclusions and recommendations from this inventory of tools for ensuring land tenure security for the 120,000 people affected by the Fomi dam project.
This research was conducted as part of the Global Water Initiative in West Africa in collaboration with the Directorate General of the Fomi dam. GWI West Africa is implemented by IUCN and IIED and funded by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation.

Agriculture in large-scale rice irrigation schemes needs to be made to work for both the state, in terms of economic returns and national food security, and for the smallholders whose livelihoods depend on it. When it comes to the development of new dams and large-scale irrigation, more information is needed about their economic viability and how the water, land, and economic benefits can be shared equitably to support local development.
