Abstract:
One of the major challenges facing humanity is the problem of water, especially for the wellbeing of low-income communities. The objective of this research is to diagnose the results of the implementation of decentralization on the management of water points and AEVs in the Municipality of Natitingou in Benin. The methodological approach adopted to conduct the study consisted of data collection as a first step. These data consist of socioeconomic data from field surveys, demographic data obtained at INSAE, climate and statistics related to the various water points and AEVs carried out in the municipality. These data were collected thanks to the documentary research and the investigations in real environment. At the end of this study, it appears that a total of 125 hydraulic structures were built in the municipality of Natitingou by the authorities at the central level of the State. These efforts continued with the local authorities following the advent of decentralization in 2003 through the construction of more than 110 hydraulic structures.
