Abstract: "The interdisciplinary research project IMPETUS examines since mid-2000 the main aspects of the water cycle on the basis of two river catchment areas in Benin and Morocco. The main objective is to enable to our partner countries a sustainable management of scarce resource 'water'. (...) The implementing of [Spatial Decision Support Systems] as well as the training and further training in the domain of the water management and the food security are ... key duties of the project." The website offers a lot of information and studies (fulltexts) about the results of the projects, as well as two e-books in Engl. and French with the whole report on Benin and Morocco. The e-books also have chapters on society and economy. [according to site editor’s information] [supplemented]
