The present intervention concerns the Selingué Rural Development Project. It includes the development of a hydro-agricultural perimeter of 1120 ha net to compensate for crop losses caused by the dam's impoundment. The project also aims to improve the social and general living conditions of the populations concerned by the construction of new improved housing, health assistance, drinking water supply and the construction of health centres, maternity units, community centres and schools. The main components of the project are: (A) hydro-agricultural development; (B) monitoring; (C) population transfer and resettlement operations; (D) feeder road; (E) food aid; (F) social infrastructure and (G) management society.
The objective of the project is to relocate the populations affected by the impoundment of the Sélingué dam, whose lands and villages should be flooded in 1980, to develop new irrigated crop lands in order to ensure a regular supply basic foodstuffs whatever the climatic hazards - unlike the current situation - through total water control in the area.
The main beneficiaries of the project are the rural populations of the Selingué dam area in the Sikasso region.
