Abstract:Tremendous advances have been made in recent years towards mobilizing groundwater resources. Many village water supply programmes have been set up, with more than 10,000 new water points coming on stream every year in West and Central Africa. The present compendium, in both English and French, provides a bibliographical analysis of the major works published recently on village water supply and groundwater resource mobilization, particularly those that have received French funding. Each one-page fact sheet covers one, or sometimes several, documents, with bibliographical references, a short description and often an assessment of the quality of the findings, outlining subsequent steps taken - or to be taken - for the operation in question. The fact sheets have been classified by document origin and destination: general studies, most of them carried out under the auspices of the Interafrican Committee of Hydraulics Studies; country surveys; project implementation reports; support resources such as manuals, reference works, data processing methods and models, and general guideline documents; reports on activities by (French) workers in the field; and general documents. Each major section is preceded by a short introductory note indicating the main subjects concerned in the corresponding fact sheets and the main options chosen for the future.
