Within the framework of the project "Managing hydrogeological risks in the Iullemeden Aquifer System (IAS)", Mali, Niger and Nigeria, sharing the IAS, combine their efforts to prevent and/or attenuate the potential risks which threaten their water resources in order to ensure their management. The Iullemeden Aquifers System includes mainly the two aquifers of the Continental intercalary and the Continental Terminal. It covers a surface of 500,000 km2. The development of elements of policy for the reduction of the transboundary risks of the IAS, appeared as a need which consolidates these efforts and consolidates them.
