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. Consequently, it is a mere briefing document on the current status of the programmes. This report takes stock on the one hand of the stage reached by the programmes of existing organizations and on the other hand activities carried out recently in connection with other river and lake basins where there exist no genuine cooperative mechanisms.
