The Sustainable Management of Water and Fish Resources (SUSFISH+) project was led by a consortium of the Österreichische Austauschdienst (Austria), the Austrian Partnership Programme in Higher Education and Research for Development (Austria), the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (Austria), University of Vienna (Austria), Institute for Environmental and Agricultural Research (Burkina Faso), University of Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), Polytechnic University of Bobo-Dioulasso (Burkina Faso), the International Union for Conservation of Nature, General Directorate for Fish Resources (Burkina Faso), and the Ministry of Environment and Fish Resources (Burkina Faso).
The main goal of the project was to produce reliable knowledge and improve policies, management, research and education in the field of fisheries. The project focused on the Nakambe (White Volta) basin in Burkina Faso, which faces important development and environmental challenges. The Centre for Systems Solutions was tasked with designing and facilitating the Nakambe basin strategic simulation, which would further engage stakeholders in the process of identifying the water- and fish sector-related issues in Burkina Faso.
This project has been funded with support from the Austrian Development Cooperation, OEAD and APPEAR.
