Algeria willing to benefit from UNDP expertise in dam management

ALGIERS- Algeria wants to benefit from the expertise of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) particularly in the management and safety of dams, Abdelouahab Nouri, Minister of Water Resources and Environment said Wednesday in Algiers.

"Algeria soon will build 12 new dams in addition to the 72 already in operation, and we have requested UNDP to share with us its expertise in the fields of management and security of the dams," said Minister following his meeting with UNDP resident representative and Coordinator of UN System in Algeria, Cristina Amaral.

The two officials also discussed issues related to the rational management of water resources and their mobilization, as well as a joint project of integrated waste management, near Algiers.

Expressing the "full" readiness to technically assist Algeria in the field of dam management, Amaral highlighted the "huge" work undertaken by Algeria in the field of hydraulic infrastructures and the aspects of their security and management.

In addition, Nouri expressed Algeria's interest to benefit from UNDP's experience in mobilizing groundwater through recharge water tables, a technique mastered by the UN organization experts.

Being a solution, used in case of drought, the artificial recharge of groundwater is a possible method from the pipe surface water and rainwater, especially through injection wells or infiltration basins.
