The interdisciplinary GLOWA Volta Project (GVP) was launched in May 2000 to support sustainable water resource management in the riparian countries of the Volta Basin in West Africa.

Scientists, students and experts from Africa and Europe develop
scientifically sound Decision Support Resources for the authorities in the region.

Our objective is the analysis of the physical and socio-economic
determinants of the hydrological cycle in the Volta Basin in the face of global change.

The third phase of the GVP (June 2007-May 2009) aims at the
transfer of knowledge, tools and technology to our African partners.
