Abstracts

The reforestation of the river banks is a form of resilience of populations facing climate change, soils erosion, silting and sedimentation of rivers. In its participatory form, the reforestation highlights the primordial role of the riverside populations in the management of water resources. The present study made it possible.

This paper evaluates the soil and vegetation parameters indicating the stabilization of the rivers banks. The methodology is based field description and characterization of vegetation and soils depending the oldness of reforestation.

This study shows that the participatory reforestation approach for the reconstruction of degraded vegetation and soils, reduce silting of the banks and contributing to fix the banks. However, the participatory approach remains limited by the lack of plants and their accessibility in the villages for reforestation; in addition there is a still incomplete mastery of the technique of river banks' reforestation.

Keywords :

Banks’ degradation; reforestation; water resources management; participatory approach; Nakanbé basin; Burkina Faso.
