Abstract:This study examines the nature of the interface between water rights and land tenure in the Sahel. Following the Introduction by Lorenzo Cotula, ch. 2 (also by Lorenzo Cotula) defines key concepts and reviews main trends in policy and legislation. Ch. 3 (Lorenzo Cotula and Oumar Sylla) discusses the land/water rights interface with regard to irrigation, mainly covering Burkina Faso, Mali and Senegal. Ch. 4 (Brigitte Thébaud, Gill Vogt and Kees Vogt) is concerned with pastoral water points in different Sahelian contexts, but focusing on Niger. Ch. 5 (Lorenzo Cotula and Ced Hesse) deals with wetlands, presenting material from a programme in the Inner Niger Delta, Mali. Ch. 6 (by Lorenzo Cotula) concludes. [ASC Leiden abstract]
