Project Details & Results With an estimated population of about 3000 inhabitants in the village Tassaou Hausa and the consolidation of eight hamlets that are supplied by 2 points, one is a drill, and the other one a well that dries up intermittently. The second well has just collapsed. That motivates the people to use water for the gardens located further away than two kilometers from the water for some. To the needs of the inhabitants the daily water needs for the thousands of cattle, which has to be satisfied, must be added. The sinking of a cemented and fitted well, that was long asked for by the population, will thus help a lot, will also make additional time for productive activities available and simultaneously reduce the time needed to fetch water for the women. For these reasons OSE IL ED Yanai, on behalf of the community Tassaou Haoussa and its eight hamlets, is submitting this project document for the sinking of a cemented well in this locality. The project fits perfectly within the framework for the implementation of strategies, plans and programs including the Environmental Reduction Strategy (PRS), a single reference framework for economic and social policies adopted by the Niger government in January 2002. This strategy was revised in 2007 and takes into account the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), that were adopted by the international community and Niger in 2000. These two agendas, one global and the other a national complementary, mobilize all stakeholders, including the civil society, around one discourse and action plans unifying the Business Development . Also in its strategy for implementing the MDGs and the Accelerated Development and Poverty Reduction (PRRS), Niger has set up objectives including "ensuring of environmental sustainability" for the well being of present and future generations. This strategy is accompanied by the Rural Development Strategy (RDS), that has assigned the rural sector the role of the main engine for economic growth until 2015.
