Restoring water to the village of Séméré

The project aimed to rehabilitate the Séméré dam in the municipality of Ouaké. This entailed returning it to service to satisfy the water needs of the local population, subsequently improving the local economy while contributing to the ecological balance of the region.


The village of Séméré and its surrounding population (11,000 people) now have access to running water for their daily domestic needs. The capacity of the water reservoir is larger than originally planned. The market gardening area caters to the needs of 40 famers and four new farmers have started a market gardening activity. Livestock now have access to water at a specific location reserved for the animals. The site today provides a pleasant environment and boosts the dynamics of the village. Fish stocking took place after the rainy season in July 2014.
