CLE of Yakouta
Reforestation: The Yakouta dam with a capacity of 26.5 million cubic meter is subject to multiple pressures. To protect the work and sustain water resources, the Water Agency Liptako through its Local Committee for Water takes action within this framework. Thus for the dam that spans 11 villages, 5 villages were selected by the CLE for reforestation.
Indeed 10000 plants were acquired with 2000 plants brought down by the people in each village with the technical assistance of Environmental Agents.
Ravines: Our actions in water resource protection in our technical management area is managed by the CLE including bunds, treatment of ravines and gullies from dry stone sills and reforestation. Thus CLE identified ravines and gullies to be addressed in the sub-basins of the dam Yakouta and recorded this in his annual activity program in 2014. The sand from the sand dunes around the dam and materials in suspension are usually drained by these channels which strongly contribute to filling the dam. In order to curb this phenomenon of silting, the Water Agency Liptako encourage such actions by providing support through subsidies it grants to its CLE space competence to carry out activities contributing to the protection of water resources.
Indeed several ravines and / or gutters were treated by technicians in the field chosen by the CLE for the purpose of restoration and a gradual reduction of silting phenomenon of hydraulic structure.
CLE of Lilgouri
Reforestation: Six thousand (6000) meters stony cords in 2014. This technique is used not only for water resource protection, but also for the restoration of the soil generally undergoes severe degradation due to erosion by water or wind and.
Bunds: As part of our efforts to protect and restore water resources of the banks including courses and lakes reforestation are made by members of the CLE Lilgouri. This activity is beyond the increase of vegetation cover and soil protection against erosion in their watersheds.
6000 plants are then acquired and put to earth in the form of one or more line (s) hedges of the population and assisted by the Environmental Service Agents to limit the scope of protection or prohibit land use by the local population.
