In a context of increasing scarcity of access to good quality water in sufficient quantity, the Ellé-Isole-Laïta territory has undertaken a reflection on the links between the economy, territorial development and access to the resource: What are the uses of water in the catchment area ? What are the consequences of a reduction in water availability ? In terms of public action, who finances what ? What are the financial flows associated with water management ? What (new) actions need to be taken in the next 5-10 years ?
Within the framework of the elaboration of the Water Development and Management Scheme (SAGE) and the implementation of a Strategic Water Action Programme (PASE), the Ellé Isole Laita basin is considering the relationship between socio-economic uses and water resources. The study aims to improve the PASE project by deepening the following points:
• Inventory of water uses
• Valuation of the cost of inaction and ecosystem services
• Evaluation of water management financing channels
• Costing of the PASE
• Elaboration of the monitoring dashboard of the PASE
