Thus, institutional set up are needed to organize the FS collection and transport (C&T) in adequacy with the local context. To ensure that the FS from each onsite sanitation system is conveyed to the treatment plants, precise conditions and rules must be defined. A participatory process has been undertaken in Ouagadougou, (Burkina Faso) with the C&T companies, aiming at providing them a decree regulating the services that they deliver and a License allowing their official recognition and right to do their business.

This project is a first step to a new approach to integrated water resource management : the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry is supporting the Kurdish government by funding through a grant an IWRM project for the Greater Zab river basin with a view to providing Kurdish institutions with territorial decision-making tools which they are currently lacking. Local Water Committees will be set up in each of the 19 Greater Zab sub basins in Kurdistan Region which will be in charge of preparing a Sub Basin Water Scheme, a local adaptation of the Plan for Water Management and Development. As of now, after a technical and institutional diagnosis of water management in the basin, the project has prepared an action plan for sustainable water resource development.
