Aménagement et gestion intégrée de la ressource en eau dans les localités de Bory et de Beaulieu

The towns of Bory and Beaulieu are located in isolated areas subject to flooding and erosion problems. The objective of the project is to improve the living conditions of the populations by securing and enhancing the value of water resources.

A drinking water supply and irrigation system for small market garden plots has been set up. The development of the watershed has made it possible to secure the source and the infrastructure while maintaining efficient agricultural activity. Thanks to the coordination of several partners and the involvement of communities, sustainable management of drinking water is implemented.
