Better manage watersheds

Dams may serve as a solution to offer protection, but their long-term effectiveness will depend in large measure on managing the watershed, and especially on reforestation of its slopes. Channels such as oued beds must also be cleared and vulnerabilities properly identified. If the watershed is not managed and reforestation is not part of the plan, the dams will not be as effective as they could be. They should always be part of integrated solutions with redundancies built into them
