Dams are world widely recognized as a key factor for accelerating economic growth through increasing energy access and industrialization, increasing potable water access, and promoting food security through increased agriculture . They are essential for water resources control and management . West Africa region is characterized by 28 transboundary river basins with the most important like the Niger River covering 11 countries, the Senegal River covering 4, the Volta covering 6, the Lake Chad covering 8, and the Comoé covering 4. Also, there are several billion of m3 of fresh water stocked in the groundwater of the region . Even with these potentialities, the region suffers from water scarcity, lack of electricity access, and food security, due to the unequal distribution of rainfall, climatic conditions, and the lack of hydraulic infrastructures for Water control . That’s why building dams constituted the response of countries' governments to the challenge of water control .
