L'une des contraintes- et pas des moindres- à sa réalisation, est la préservation de l'environnement de cette région de la Guinée, dont une partie a été classée patrimoine mondial, en raison de la richesse de la faune et de la faune dont certaines espèces sont très rares au monde.

    The rate of degradation and depletion of natural resources in Africa has been accelerated as a result of the increasing population pressure.

    The aim of this report is not to raise and analyze the various constraints facing the development of river and lake basins but merely to assess the programme of our organizations set up over decades. Indeed, time available for drafting this report and the data available to us did not allow scrutinizing certain issues relating to the development of river and lake basins. This report made use of data contained in another report prepared in 1989 and supplemented by other data gathered in the process of drafting this report.
