The consultation workshop with Burkinabe key stakeholders for the V1 Project within the Challenge Program on Water and Food (CPWF) of the Volta Basin took place from 14 to 15 March 2011 in Ouagadougou. The meeting room of the DIST in CNRST was booked for the first day while in the second day, the workshop took place in the conference room of the National Archives Centre. The opening ceremony was made by Dr. Eric Kemp-‐Benedict (SEI/Boston, USA) and Dr. Kaboré Séraphine (INERA/Ouagadougou). After welcoming all attendees of the workshop, Dr. Eric has thanked INERA for its active participation in the 2nd phase of the CPWF program for the Volta Basin and particularly in the V1 project “targeting and scaling out water harvesting interventions for agriculture”. He has outlined the objectives of the workshop, that is, to consult and discuss among actors for the better understanding of the methodology adopted for the V1 research project. The coordinator of the V1 project in INERA (Dr. Kaboré) seconded Dr. Eric and, on behalf of the Director of INERA welcomed the trainer as well as all participants who positively responded to her invitation. She argued that the main objective of the project is to elaborate a reliable tool suitable for scaling out good water management practices and approaches for food production in the Volta Basin. She finally asked attendees to actively work for the success of the workshop. After this ceremony, each attendee was asked to fully present himself. This was followed by two PowerPoint presentations of an overview of the project. Attendees were from INERA, government institutions, NGOs and development projects on water and agriculture.
