On the occasion of this international conference, several workshops will be jointly organized with the Network of International Commissions and Transboundary Basin Organizations – INTBO, as the topics planned for water resources management in Africa are of prime importance.

 Integrated water resources management in Africa: case studies,
 International Initiatives and Facilities for water in Africa,
 Statutes, responsibilities and processes for the creation of transboundary basin organizations,
 Preparation of management and action plans for transboundary basins and their financing,
