L eau Au Coeur de la Science Book Excerpt:

La quatrième de couverture indique : "Dans le contexte actuel de changement climatique, de surexploitation des ressources et d'impacts anthropiques sur l'environnement, la question de l'eau s'impose comme l'un des défis majeurs du XXIe siècle. L'accès à l'eau potable pour le plus grand nombre est ainsi inscrit parmi les Objectifs du millénaire pour le développement. La répartition et la disponibilité de l'eau, ses usages, qu'ils soient domestiques, agricoles, industriels ou énergétiques, ainsi que la qualité de l'eau sont également au coeur de la recherche scientifique, comme en témoigne cet ouvrage. Le lecteur y trouvera des textes accessibles à tous, accompagnés d'une abondante iconographie. Les principaux programmes de recherche menés sur le thème de l'eau par l'IRD et ses partenaires du Sud y sont présentés sous forme d'encadrés. L'ouvrage s'adresse à tous ceux qui souhaitent découvrir les principaux enjeux actuels liés à l'eau dans une perspective de gestion durable."

valuation rapide de l tat de pr paration du Mali au commerce lectronique Book Excerpt:

Malgré ses difficultés pour faire face aux défis qui ont mis à l’épreuve les capacités de l’État et de la population à sauvegarder l’unité nationale et la sécurité, le Mali n’est pas resté à l’écart des transformations induites par les technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC). Son gouvernement a lancé des initiatives dans les domaines de l’administration électronique et des infrastructures des TIC afin de tirer profit des opportunités fournies par le développement de ces dernières, notamment à travers l’adoption du référentiel Mali Numérique 2020, une stratégie nationale pour le développement de l’économie numérique. Une nouvelle dynamique régionale, impulsée par les Ministres du Commerce de l'Union Économique et Monétaire Ouest Africaine (UEMOA) dans la Déclaration ministérielle en date du 29 septembre 2017 visant à définir un plan de travail régional pour le développement du commerce électronique, permettra de soutenir les efforts du Mali dans ce domaine. Une première étape dans la préparation de ce plan a été initiée par la Commission de l’UEMOA, en coopération avec la CNUCED, avec l’organisation d’un atelier régional sur le commerce électronique, organisé à Ouagadougou du 9 au 11 octobre 2018. L’impulsion d’institutions régionales telles que l’UEMOA et la Communauté Économique des États de l’Afrique de l’Ouest (CEDEAO), a encouragé les États membres à harmoniser les politiques d’intégration économique, y compris le cadre réglementaire applicable au commerce électronique, et de nouvelles réformes doivent être conduites face aux développements rapides de la digitalisation.

French Interventions in Africa Book Excerpt:

This book explores France’s African intervention policy and related legitimation strategies through the United Nations, the European Union, and various ad hoc multilateral frameworks. France’s enduring ability to project military power on the African continent and influence political events there has been central to its self-perception as a major power. However, since the end of the cold war, France’s paternalistic interference has been increasingly questioned, not least by African audiences. This has produced a gradual and somewhat reluctant turn to multilateralism on the part of French leaders. Drawing on in-depth case studies of recent French intervention policy, this edited volume critically assesses France’s efforts to reassure critics by securing multilateral endorsements; share burdens and liabilities through collective implementation; and re-affirm its status as a major power by spearheading complex missions. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Strategic Studies.

This paper is written in the belief that people are important and that equipment is to serve the needs of the people and therefore should be designed to meet their specific needs and environment. This is particularly important in the case of a developing country when a professional engineer accepts the responsibility to formulate policies evaluate equipment imple ment projects and train national people. 1.

Mande Music Book Excerpt:

With Mande Music, Eric Charry offers the most comprehensive source available on one of Africa's richest and most sophisticated music cultures. Using resources as disparate as early Arabic travel accounts, oral histories, and archival research as well as his own extensive studies in Mali, Guinea, Senegal, and the Gambia, Charry traces this music culture from its origins in the thirteenth-century Mali empire to the recording studios of Paris and New York. He focuses on the four major spheres of Mande music—hunter's music, music of the jelis or griots, jembe and other drumming, and guitar-based modern music—exploring how each evolved, the types of instruments used, the major artists, and how each sphere relates to the others. With its maps, illustrations, and musical transcriptions as well as an exhaustive bibliography, discography, and videography, this book is essential reading for those seeking an in-depth look at one of the most exciting, innovative, and deep-rooted phenomena on the world music scene. A compact disc is available separately.

La majorité des catastrophes sont liées à l'eau et la majorité des ressources en eau douce se trouvent dans des bassins transfrontières. Ce guide « Des paroles aux actes » a été préparé par la CEE-ONU et l’UNISDR pour appuyer la mise en œuvre du Cadre de Sendai. Il vise à accroître la prise de conscience de l'importance de la gestion de l’eau par bassin et de la coopération transfrontière pour la réduction des risques de catastrophes, tout en tenant compte de l'adaptation au changement climatique. Il fournit des informations sur les mesures que les gouvernements peuvent prendre, à différents niveaux, afin de tirer parti des valeurs de la gestion par bassin et de la coopération transfrontière ainsi que des bonnes pratiques et des enseignements tirés dans ce domaine.

Comparing Armed Conflicts Book Excerpt:

Comparing armed conflicts primes the production of categories that, when mobilized, can alter the trajectories of the conflicts. Considering the political dynamism of spaces of conflict and intervention, and that practitioners regularly seek out academic expertise, this book discusses the possibilities and limits of comparative approaches to understanding armed conflict and intervention. Capacity-building experts, development workers, international organizations, and diplomats use their previous experiences and bring them into new contexts to understand and respond to their environment. Conflict actors can also make comparisons to buttress their political position in negotiations, consolidate their control over fighters, and as calls for transnational rebel solidarity. The use of such comparisons is an inherently political move and it has an impact on the production of scientific knowledge, on conflict dynamics themselves, and on the formulation and implementation of conflict management policy: comparison is inherently a practice of order-making. While there are important epistemological and methodological stakes associated with researchers engaging in comparison, there are also important productive effects connected to the research avenues taken. The chapters in this book were originally published in the Civil Wars.

Contemporary French Security Policy in Africa Book Excerpt:

Despite efforts to normalize its post-colonial relationship and the downsizing of its permanent military presence, France remains a sought-after security provider in Africa. This book uncovers individual and collective motivations that drive French foreign and security policy in Africa. It explains French interventionism by drawing on actors’ subjective perceptions of reality and seeks to answer why French decision-makers are ready to accept the considerable risks and costs involved in guaranteeing the security of African countries. Adopting an actor-centric constructivist ontology, the author traces the emergence and subsequent development of ideas throughout the decision-making processes that led to Operation Serval in Mali and Operation Sangaris in the Central African Republic.
