ABSTRACT
The water resources of Côte d'Ivoire are very much used for water drinking supply of populations, breeding and also for the agriculture. But the abundance of this resource knew disturbances as from the years 1968 to 1970. These upheavals resulted in a fall of precipitations of 12.4% to 31.4% and flows which varied from 31.40% to 55.4%. The projections carried out on the hydro-climate parameters under scenario A1B with the climate model RegCM3 give an increase in the annual average temperatures of 3°C to 4.2°C and a downward trend of annual precipitations from 4.9% from 2I00.
