News Mauritania: water information system to contribute to the water sector monitoring & evaluation

In November 2016, the Ministry of Hydraulic and Sanitation of Mauritania has initiated, with the support of UNICEF, a process to improve the monitoring and evaluation of drinking water, sanitation and hygiene. Last December, this process has been extended to water resources with the support of GWP-Med. SEMIDE and the International Office for Water have been selected to make a diagnosis of the monitoring and evaluation of surface and ground water in Mauritania and propose an action plan to improve the process and move toward an integrated National Water Information System.

The diagnosis mission took place in December 2017, and the action plan was successfully validated in early February 2018 for the formulation of a unique programme valuing around 6 M€ other 10 years to reinforce the monitoring and evaluation of the whole waster sector, including 4M€ dedicated to water resources monitoring and evaluation. This approach is necessary to allow the country to formulate adaptation and mitigation strategy and investment to face Climate Change impacts
