Women's Right to Water for Agricultural Use in the Sahel (Mauritanie, Niger, Sénégal)

Rural women in the Sahel are dynamic and important actors in the subsistence of their communities, especially in a context of male migration and the exploitation of hydro development for agriculture.

This grant will allow the Réseau africain pour le développement intégré (RADI) to determine the methods and quality of access of women to agricultural water resources in the three countries under study.

The results of the research will be used to strengthen the capacity of women's organizations and to feed into advocacy efforts aimed at ensuring effective economic rights for women in the context of decentralization and the food crisis.
