The numerous challenges linked to water management in the Sanaga basin require the establishment of a rational, equitable and sustainable management framework that ties with the national process of water sector reform.
Water resource management
Evaluating, mobilising and protecting water resources are some of Artelia’s core activities and the company has extremely wide-ranging experience and knowledge of hydraulics, hydrogeology, hydrology, geomorphology, agronomy and the environment.
In France, Artelia is determining the volumes of water that can be abstracted and the target low-flow rates for several river catchments. The Group completed an environmental assessment of the fourth “Nitrates Directive” action programme in several regions of France, is helping municipal authorities reduce their use of plant protection products, and is currently working on several local water management plans.
In order to cater for the needs of the population by the year 2020, the objective of the project was to protect the aquifer while extending the drinking water supply network.
