Mecca for pilgrimage and decided to The man wondered whether, there is stay and greet Sheikh Uthman bn any pilgrimage done in Sokoto, Fodio RA at Sokoto. On meeting because they are just outside the town sheikh RA he gave them options to of Sokoto according to the man. Eight insisted in Mecca. Sheikh RA instructed the on proceeding, because the journey on man to go down the small hill and find horse to Mecca took nine months and out whether he knows any of the men cannot delay any further, but one in whites down the hill.
He and was looking at the people moving stayed and waited for sheikh RA to around, Arabs and blacks when he saw instruct him on proceeding but the eight. The eight Arafat. Sheikh RA called the man and laughed at him and asked whether he asked him to put his pilgrimage cloth was in his right senses. They exclaimed which he did and the two strolled out this is Mecca. The man was puzzled of Sokoto.
After short walk, the man and showed them sheikh RA on top of saw a a hill which they climbed. And our blessed master, God. Some Sufis have this light very and exercise to develop and function very well, strongly flowing to the environment through the spiritual faculties in man need three items their faces they are referred to as Musawi Al- too to develop and function very well and Wirth.
This is because Moses AS was the first these three form the pillars of retreat; these to have such light flowing strongly to the are solitude, wakeful state and empty or half- environment from his face when he came out filled stomach. The Islamic type answers this reduced. Next slides will take a look at meditation. Sufi attains mastery in his Today rooms kept specially entire life he can observe for that purpose are found Muraqaba without a in Sufi centres. He is subconcious, he will witness perceiving, feeling or even seeing many things but cannot remember any.
He becomes conscious but knowledge flows from his subconscious mind. Infallible and complete knowledge flows to his conscious mind. He sees no physical things before him, but perceive its presence and have full knowledge of it. The Sufi starts seeing the multitude of unseen surrounding us. Invisible spirits and even angels can be seen by the Sufi at this stage. Like events unfolding itself in distant lands are made known to the Sufi, past an future events as well.
In this stage every aspect of the universe comes to the vicinity of the Sufi. He hears sounds clearly even from distant planets, he sees anywhere he wills in this universe, he smells fragrance from far town and finally he can stretch his hand to touch anything however far it is in the universe. The universe becomes like a model before the Sufi. At this stage the mysterious powers of evidence stages are available to the Sufi even in none meditation stage, even when he is absorbed in public or occupied with human activities. His awareness about God to divine ones. At this stage divine becomes so strong that he becomes powers existing in divine attributes not interested in the awareness manifest themselves in the sufi.
Some of God :- at this stage the Sufi starts the penetrated veils took shape drawing to the divine proximity again and blocked the Sufi unveiling the veils that stand proximity with God, he loses the between the creator and the created. The Sufi is made to knowledge of the divine attribute. Gradually the Sufi come back to his The stage of the Sufi becomes veiled human manifestation and from the commons. The mind of the Sufi love him, so I become his sense remains dissolved in God, of hearing with which he hears, nothing stays in it but God; his and his sense of sight with which body remains with the humans he sees, and his hand with which and the Universe.
Like remedy from physical or spiritual diseases and defects. The Sufi started with awakening his heart where most spiritual energies are sleeping. In this mode the only goal of the Sufi is God nothing more and nothing less. Next slide will explain this. He should find the closest Sheikh in his Silsila Spiritual chain , preferably the one they once lived together and for better result the Sheikh should be deceased. At this stage, the mind- focus of the Sufi advances to focus on the prophet SAW.
The Sufi is one step to the peak of meditation. It is removing of veils between the meditating Sufi and majestic attributes of God which are preserved for His selected servants that excelled. It is coming closer to these attributes that are referred to as divine proximity.
This is the Alif posture. This is Laam posture. Ignore dream. This is one of the greatest mysteries and the most obscure point, a mind that is not having a seat in the palace of God may never grasp its apprehension! Seeing God but the heart of my servant can. Then He mounted the throne. He contact with all the divine attributes of splendour and majesty of knoweth all that entereth the earth and all that emergeth God, then one will cease to be one and can then see God therefrom and all that cometh from the sky and that Almighty.
And Allah is seer of what ye do. This explains the divine And He revealed on His servant what He revealed. At that environment divine attributes. This is by their spiritual progression and where Moses AS was, there is no such spiritual figure and the gaining divine attention. However, there are other filthy or low only object closer is mountain. Moses AS was resurrected later. Almighty, all creatures coming closer to this type of saint feels immediately the presence of God absolutely and perfectly. This will inshAllah be discussed on divine presence until he became in due course.
These grades are Divine and bestow on saints by the Almighty out of His infinite mercy. We are two spirits dwelling in one body. If you see me, you see Him; And if you see Him, you see us both. Sheikh Junayd Baghdadi RA. He who zealously makes him to speak in the ecstasy of the defends his religion is dearer to Allah Divine Splendour feeling every than he who has a good opinion of Manifested Divine Attribute so close as if anyone. This confirmed Tajalliyatil Haqq. The spirit becomes aware of the immediate needs of the universe from these attributes and it provides the universe with these needs as permitted by God.

In recent years, the rate of rural to urban migration increased rapidly as a result of the deteriorating agricultural conditions. Most rural residents live in villages consisting of clusters of clay structures with thatched roofs and dirt floors.
Most of the urban poor live in crowded shantytowns, which lack urban services. Earth Science Education in Sudan. The first geological department in Sudan was founded in in the University of Khartoum. In the s, six more geological departments have been added in the newer universities. The types of courses offered include Diploma, B. General , B. Honours , M. The Geology programmes are strongly supported by field work training and mapping. Final-year students follow specialised training in one of the following topics: hydrogeology, geophysics, economic geology, sedimentology and engineering geology.
The final assessment and grading are decided with the help of internal and external examiners. Entry into the Geology programmes is based on merit and performance. Employment opportunities are limited and are found mainly in the Government's geological offices, the universities and research centres, and private companies.
The Department of Geology at the University of Khartoum has long-standing internal and external links with outside partners. This has been manifested in the training of staff members, the donation of teaching materials and laboratory facilities. The chief problems currently facing Earth Science Education in Sudan are underfunding, poor equipment, laboratory facilities and logistics. Other problems include a shortage of staff, absence of research, lack of supervision and emigration of staff members.
Urgent measures are needed to assess and evaluate the status of Earth Science Education in terms of objectives, needs and difficulties encountered. Earth Science Education is expected to contribute significantly to the exploitation of mineral resources and socio-economic development in the Sudan.

To elucidate whether Rift Valley fever virus RVFV diversity in Sudan resulted from multiple introductions or from acquired changes over time from 1 introduction event, we generated complete genome sequences from RVFV strains detected during the and outbreaks.
Phylogenetic analyses of small, medium, and large RNA segment sequences indicated several genetic RVFV variants were circulating in Sudan , which all grouped into Kenya-1 or Kenya-2 sublineages from the — eastern Africa epizootic. Bayesian analysis of sequence differences estimated that diversity among the and Sudan RVFV variants shared a most recent common ancestor circa The sequences indicate recent movement of RVFV and support the need for surveillance to recognize when and where RVFV circulates between epidemics, which can make data from prediction tools easier to interpret and preventive measures easier to direct toward high-risk areas.

Since the first acquired immunodeficiency syndrome AIDS case was confirmed in , Senegal has conducted an aggressive prevention campaign. CFA devaluation has made Senegal attractive to tourists and business visitors--another factor responsible for growth of the legalized commercial sex industry. Although sex workers are instructed in condom use and tested annually for HIV, only of the registered sex workers have reported for check-ups, and the majority of prostitutes are unregistered. Public education has involved outreach to religious leaders, promotion of affordable condoms, and distribution of over 75, leaflets to key target populations.
Special courts, under military jurisdiction, dealt with offenses affecting national security or involving As early Toxoplasma gondii is an obligate, intracellular, parasitic protozoan within the phylum Apicomplexa that causes toxoplasmosis in mammalian hosts including humans and birds. We used modified direct agglutination test for the screening of the animals' sera collected in Senegal. In total, animals' sera have been studied: bovines, 43 sheep, 52 goats, 63 horses, 13 donkeys and dogs.
The collection of sera was performed in four different regions of Senegal : Dakar, Sine Saloum, Kedougou and Basse Casamance from to Private dogs from villages were more often to have the anti-Toxoplasma antibodies compared to security society-owned dogs from Dakar. It may be explained by different meal consumed by dogs factory-produced meal for dogs from Dakar vs. Intense circulation of T. Tropical climate with high temperature and humidity is favorable for the conservation of oocysts of T. Results presented here may contribute to the evaluation of the risks of toxoplasmosis in humans in Senegal.
Training of the midwife in Senegal. The profession of midwifery continues to hold a prominent place in the health manpower structure of many developing countries. The training program at the School of Midwifery in Senegal lasts for 3 years and is based on the teaching in French midwifery schools. Because of the special conditions in Senegal , the objective of the teaching is to train midwives to be multiskilled workers who can deliver health care services in preventive as well as in curative medicine, in both rural and urban settings, and in the maternity clinic as well as in the community.
The following proposals for revising the training were developed: 1 the level of admission will become the baccalaureate; 2 the nursing training will be strengthened and the length of rural field practice will be extended to at least 3 months, including provisions for practical application of primary health care; 3 in pediatrics, more stress will be placed on diet counseling, home visits, and the treatment of infectious and parasitic diseases; 4 training will cover administration, supervision, evaluation, and maintenance of materials and facilities.
The midwife in Senegal also plays a primary role in family planning, and in family planning centers should be reponsible for gynecological examinations; giving assistance in the choice of contraceptive methods; placement, follow-up, and removal of IUDs; and detection of sterility, genital and mammary cancers, and sexually transmissible diseases. The project of an interdisciplinary research institute in Senegal was initiated in in Senegal West Africa and became a template for a similar project in the US in Since then, numerous meetings and presentations have been held at various national and international institutions, workshops and conferences.
The current development of this partnership includes drafts for a full design of all systems at each facility, as well as the physics, applied health and educational programs to be implemented. The Senegal facility was conceived for scientific capacity building and equally to act as a focal point aimed at using the local scientific expertise. An anticipated outcome would be a contribution to the reduction of an ever-growing brain drain process suffered by the country, and the African continent in general.
The development of the project led also to a strong African orientation of the facility: built for international collaboration, it is to be a pan-African endeavor and to serve primarily African countries. The facility received a presidential approval in a meeting and will develop an interdisciplinary program centered on a strong materials science research which will also allow for the establishment of an advanced analytical physical chemistry laboratory.
A central part of the facility will be linked to state-of-the art accelerator mass spectrometry, cyclotron and low energy electromagnetic accelerator systems. The marine fishery in Senegal , West Africa, is a major source of employment and food security. It currently faces the consequences of ecological degradation.

Summer rains in western and southern Sudan have declined by percent since the mids. Observed warming of more than 1 degree Celsius is equivalent to another percent reduction in rainfall for crops. The warming and drying have impacted southern Darfur and areas around Juba. Rainfall declines west of Juba threaten southern Sudan 's future food production prospects. In many cases, areas with changing climate are coincident with zones of substantial conflict, suggesting some degree of association; however, the contribution of climate change to these conflicts is not currently understood.
Rapid population growth and the expansion of farming and pastoralism under a more variable climate regime could dramatically increase the number of at-risk people in Sudan over the next 20 years. Between and , the laboratory of Paludologie of IRD at Dakar collected over 5, snakes from all over Senegal. By studying this collection, an entirely new species was discovered for science and eight new species for Senegal. The presence of many specimens of rare species and the great number of localities from which snakes were collected also allowed us to solve several delicate taxonomic problems and better to specify the biogeography of Senegalese snakes.
Currently, the presence in Senegal of at least 55 different species has been established with certainty. The data collected simultaneously on the burden of snakebites for public health shows considerable differences according to geographic area, with populations from south-eastern Senegal being more exposed to the risk of death by snakebite. Aetiology of oral cancer in the Sudan.
To review the studied risk factors that linked to aetiology of oral cancer in the Sudan. There have been numerous reports in the increase in the incidence of oral cancer from various parts of the world. A recent trend for a rising incidence of oral cancer, with the absence of the well established risk factors, has raised concern. Although, there are inconsistent data on incidence and demographical factors, studies suggest that the physiologic response to risk factors by men and women vary in different populations. This review principally examines 33 publications devoted to aetiology of oral cancer in the Sudan , in addition to some risk factors that are commonly practiced in the Sudan.
Several studies examining risk factors for oral cancer include tobacco use Smoked and Smokeless , alcohol consumption, occupational risk, familial risk, immune deficits, virus infection and genetic factors. Toombak use and infection with high risk Human Papilloma Virus HPV were extensively investigated and linked to the aetiology of oral cancer in Sudan. Aetiology of Oral Cancer in the Sudan. Material and Methods This review principally examines 33 publications devoted to aetiology of oral cancer in the Sudan , in addition to some risk factors that are commonly practiced in the Sudan.
Results Several studies examining risk factors for oral cancer include tobacco use Smoked and Smokeless , alcohol consumption, occupational risk, familial risk, immune deficits, virus infection and genetic factors. Conclusions Toombak use and infection with high risk Human Papilloma Virus HPV were extensively investigated and linked to the aetiology of oral cancer in Sudan.
Yellow Fever Outbreak, Southern Sudan , Onyango, Clayton O. In May , an outbreak of fatal hemorrhagic fever, caused by yellow fever virus, occurred in southern Sudan.

This study examines contraceptive use among clients at the three clinics providing family planning services in Dakar, Senegal in early Most clients first became interested in family planning following the birth of a child, and most are interested in spacing future pregnancies, although one-third state that they want no more children.
The clinic itself was found to be an important determinant of the type of contraceptive used, with only the government-operated clinic providing a balance between IUDs, oral contraceptives, and barrier methods. Nearly half of the clients interviewed said that a lack of knowledge about contraception is the reason for the low contraceptive prevalence rates among Senegalese women; another frequently cited reason was the opposition of the husband.
Most clients reported the broadcast media to be the best means of providing family planning information to potential acceptors. The persistance of such migration trends from the country to cities deepens regional disparities, compounds the difficulties and cost of city management and development, specially in the case of Dakar, and runs counter to the goals of social and economic development plans The growing importance of such phenomena calls for the designing of corrective measures in favour of rural areas and small towns in order to settle rural populations and halt the inordinate and chaotic geographical growth of large cities.
Failing this, development efforts may well be compromised. Female employment reduces fertility in rural Senegal. Economic growth and modernization of society are generally associated with fertility rate decreases but which forces trigger this is unclear. In this paper we assess how fertility changes with increased labor market participation of women in rural Senegal.
Evidence from high-income countries suggests that higher female employment rates lead to reduced fertility rates but evidence from developing countries at an early stage of demographic transition is largely absent. We concentrate on a rural area in northern Senegal where a recent boom in horticultural exports has been associated with a sudden increase in female off-farm employment. Using survey data we show that employed women have a significantly higher age at marriage and at first childbirth, and significantly fewer children.
As causal identification strategy we use instrumental variable and difference-in-differences estimations, combined with propensity score matching. Results imply that female employment is a strong instrument for empowering rural women, reducing fertility rates and accelerating the demographic transition in poor countries. The effectiveness of family planning programs can increase if targeted to areas where female employment is increasing or to female employees directly because of a higher likelihood to reach women with low-fertility preferences.
Our results show that changes in fertility preferences not necessarily result from a cultural evolution but can also be driven by sudden and individual changes in economic opportunities. On Sept.

A community-based, descriptive, cross-sectional study was conducted in three towns. Three hundred and seventy-two households were polled, and blood samples for haemoglobin phenotyping were collected from individuals.
Sociodemographic, socio-economic and KAP data were collected using investigator-administered questionnaires. Descriptive, frequency distribution and multiple regression analyses were performed. About Consanguineous marriages were reported by The highest percentage of homozygous SCD was 2. HbS allele frequency was highest in children aged years The average HbS frequency across all age groups was The estimated change in log odds of having the SS genotype per year increase in age was - 0.
This represents a non-statistically significant 2. Pakistan , as an agriculture based economy, is vulnerable to various hydrometeorological hazards ranging from tropical cyclones, thunderstorms, tornadoes, drought, rain, hail, snow, lightning, fog, wind, temperature extremes, air pollution, and climatic change. However, three of the most pressing challenges in terms of water resource availability, that are different in nature, but are inter-linked to each other are discussed over here. We begin with the Karakoram Anomaly that is considered as one of the most mysterious and most speculated phenomena on Planet Earth.
Though, it is confined to the glaciers in the eastern Hindukush, western Karakoram and northwestern Himalayan mountain ranges of Northern Pakistan that are not responding to global warming in the same manner as their counterparts elsewhere, because, their retreat rates are less than the global average, and some are either stable or growing. However, the Karakoram Anomaly has baffled scientific society for more than a decade since its earliest discovery in the year The reasons of the Karakoram anomaly were mainly associated to physiography of the area and role of climate was considered marginal till now, as climate is influencing glaciers differently all over the globe.
Here, for the first time, we present a hydro-meteorological perspective based on five decades of synoptic weather observations collected by the meteorological network of Pakistan. Analysis of this unique data set indicates that increased regional scale humidity, cloud cover, and precipitation, along with decreased net radiation, near-surface wind speed, potential evapotranspiration and river flow, especially during the summer season, represent a substantial change in the energy, mass and momentum fluxes that are facilitating the establishment of the Karakoram Anomaly.
In turn, it is influencing the availability of glacier melt in River Indus in summer season. Secondly, we developed a hydrometeorological data sets for Pakistan as they. Climate variability and environmental stress in the Sudan -Sahel zone of West Africa. In this article we assess climate variability and environmental stress in the region. Households in Senegal , Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, and Nigeria were asked about climatic changes and their perceptions were compared across north-south and west-east rainfall gradients.
However, August rainfall declined, and could therefore potentially explain the contrasting negative household perceptions of rainfall trends. Adaptation measures to counter environmental degradation included use of manure, reforestation, soil and water conservation, and protection of fauna and vegetation. Barite in Pakistan.
Before almost no barite deposits were known in Pakistan. Discovery of such deposits relatively close to oil fields in northern Pakistan in led to increased barite production from to and to doubling of production in , firmly establishing new industry for the country. During and , most of the known barite deposits in Pakistan were geologically mapped, and minimum reserves were estimated to be 1,, short tons. The largest single deposit, Ehuzdar, is estimated to contain more than 1,, short tons of barite.
Although several vein deposits contain good quality barite, 90 percent of estimated reserves are in replacement deposits concordant to bedding in sedimentary rocks. Host rocks range in age from Precambrian to Pleistocene, but the periods of barite deposition are probably Jurassic or younger. Some barite concentrated in sandstone may be of detrital origin. In late , demand for barite in Pakistan was estimated at about 8, tons annually. Although domestic barite resources exceed this figure, less than 40 percent of demand was being supplied by domestic nines in Transportation costs and limited production facilities are partly responsible for output, but the lack of quality control is a major obstacle.
Producers are not generally familiar with commercial specifications for barite and have net recognized that their products are too impure to be successfully marketed without installing the necessarycontrol procedures of sampling and beneficiation. Retrospective measles outbreak investigation: Sudan , Recent population-based studies of measles incidence and deaths in Sudan are not available. To determine the epidemiology and case-fatality rate CFR of measles, we conducted a retrospective outbreak investigation in two states in northern Sudan. South Sudan achieved political independence in , before plunging into a series of civil wars that have culminated with the signing of the Inter-Governmental Authority for Development, IGAD, driven peace agreement.
Land use change and terrestrial carbon stocks in Senegal. Environmental degradation resulting from long-term drought and land use change has affected terrestrial carbon C stocks within Africa's Sahel. We estimated Senegal 's terrestrial carbon stocks in , , and using an inventory procedure involving satellite images revealing historical land use change, and recent field measurements of standing carbon stocks occurring in soil and plants.
Senegal was divided into eight ecological zones containing 11 land uses. In , savannas, cultivated lands, forests, and steppes were the four largest land uses in Senegal , occupying 70, 22, 2. The proportion of C residing in biomass decreased with time, from 55 percent in to 38 percent in Most of the terrestrial C flux in was attributed to biomass C reduction.
Human disturbance accounted for only 22 percent of biomass C loss in , suggesting that the effects of long-term Sahelian drought continue to play an overriding role in ecosystem change. Some carbon mitigation strategies for Senegal were investigated, including potential C sequestration levels. Opportunities for C mitigation exist but are constrained by available knowledge and access to resources.
Pakistan Country Analysis Brief. Over the past few years, Pakistan has experienced a major energy crisis as a result of expensive fuel sources, chronic natural gas and electricity shortages, circular debt, and insufficient transmission and distribution systems. Global Citizenship in Pakistan.

Implementing haemophilia care in Senegal , West Africa. Despite significant progres on haemophilia care in developed world, this disease remains unknown in many sub-Saharan African countries. The objectives of this article were to report Senegalese experience on the management of haemophilia care through 18 years of follow-up.
This cohort study included patients haemophilia A, 13 haemophilia B , followed in Dakar's haemophilia treatment centre from to Our study reported a prevalence of 2. From the period to , significant progress was seen including All patients were low responders since inhibitor titre was between 1. Disabilities were seen in Implementing haemophilia care in sub-Saharan Africa is a great challenge as this disease is not yet counted in national health problems in many countries. Lessons learned from this study show a significant improvement in diagnosis and prognosis parameters.
This emphasizes the needs to set up such follow-up initiatives and to enhance medical and lay cooperation for better results. Uric acid lithiasis in the Sudan. Fifty-seven per cent of Urinary Calculi in the Sudan contain Uric Acid, 20 per cent in the pure form and 37 per cent mixed with other constituents mainly calcium oxalate. The peak age presentation of urolithiasis is years with more prediliction to males than females. An earlier study documented a high incidence of hyperuricaemia in Sudanese people.
It is probable that "voluntary dehydration" and hyperuricaemia acting together may help in the formation of uric acid stones on the surface of which other crystals mainly calcium oxalate may be deposited to form the bigger calculi which are commonly encountered in this country. Describes a study which attempts to link micro and macro approaches in the study of societal multilingualism while introducing a diachronic perspective. The sociolinguistic profile of Senegal is used as a point of departure followed by an outline of sociohistorical factors which contributed to language use.
Discusses the social implications of…. Energy and environment: A political ecology of woodfuels in Senegal. This study examines relationships between energy use and the exploitation of woodland natural resources in the West African nation of Senegal. As in many other countries in the developing world, the majority of the population in Senegal depend on woodfuels, i. Consequences of this situation include added pressure on the country's limited natural resource base, and increased socioeconomic hardship, particularly for women, as woodfuel resources become increasingly scarce.
Woodfuel energy problems in developing countries are typically described in terms of an imbalance between supply and demand that is driven by rapid population growth. However, recent research suggests that a number of other factors should be explored in order to achieve a more thorough understanding of the relationship between woodfuel energy and forest resource management.
New Perspectives on Islam in Senegal
This study attempts to determine what some of these factors are, and to explain how they inform the energy-environment situation in the case of Senegal. In addition, I examine the scope for addressing Senegal 's woodfuel problem through greater local community participation in managing energy and natural resources, a current thrust in many international initiatives designed to help the country cope with this persistent problem. A relatively new conceptual framework for the analysis of human-environment relationshipsviz.
I attempt to show how political ecology can contribute to the resolution of Senegal 's energy-environment dilemma by considering a more inclusive suite of social, economic, political, and environmental variables than has been explored by previous approaches. Findings from the research demonstrate the ability of the political ecology approach to capture many heretofore unexplored factors related to the energy-environment nexus in Senegal.
A detailed matrix is generated that illustrates the. Country watch: Pakistan. In Pakistan , which has a high fertility rate, affordable prices of condoms and family planning services attract low-income residents. This was shown by the two projects: the condom distribution scheme and the family planning franchise. However, in the price doubled in order to recover the costs, which resulted in a decline in sales.
Thus, in PSI and Social Marketing Pakistan franchised the Green Star project that aimed to raise the quality of private sector family planning clinics serving low-income women and to increase the availability and use of female-controlled contraception. By , the CSM project was selling over 80 million condoms annually. Assessment of water availability and demand in Lake Guiers , Senegal.
Assessment of water availability and demand in Lake Guiers, Senegal Water resources are critical to economic growth and social development. In most African countries, supply of drinking water to satisfy population needs is a key issue because of population growth and climate and land use change. During the last three decades, increasing population, changing patterns of water demand, and concentration of population and economic activities in urban areas has pressurize Senegal 's freshwater resources.
To overcome this deficit, Senegal turned, to the exploitation of the Lake Guiers. It is the sole water reservoir which can be used extensively as a stable freshwater. Its water is use for irrigating crops and sugar refinery and as a drinking water resource for urban centres, including Dakar, the capital city of Senegal , as well as for the local population and animal herds.
To ensure sustainability, a greater understanding of Lake Guiers's water resources and effective management of its use will be required. In this study we developed and quantified future water situation water availability and demand in Lake Guiers under scenarios of climate change and population growth until , using the water management model WEAP Water Evaluation And Planning system.
The results show that the pressure on Lake Guiers's water resources will increase, leading to greater competition between agriculture and municipal demand site. Decreasing inflows due to climate change will aggravate this situation. WEAP results offer basis to assister lake Guiers water resources manager for an efficient long-term planning and management.
