The Blue Deal programme is an initiative of the Dutch Water Authorities, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management. It offers long-term collaboration with regional and national governments in finding and developing solutions to improve water management. This Blue Deal project focuses on the Sourou, in the Volta basin (Mali and Burkina Faso).

The Sourou is a transboundary river basin, shared by Mali and Burkina Faso. Currently, there is little to no monitoring of the hydrology or sharing of available data. The Blue Deal partnership will set up a common monitoring network and create a shared understanding of the basin, in order to help manage the basin in a sustainable manner and promote cooperation. This is done in unison with the ABV, the regional organization for the management of the Volta basin, so they can extrapolate the lessons learned to the rest of the region.
