Senegal - River Lifeline (Inglês)

This Results Profile focuses on River Basin Development in Senegal.About 3.5 million people live in the Senegal River basin. In 1972, the governments of Senegal, Mauritania, and Mali formed the Organisation pour la mise en valeur du fleuve Sénégal (OMVS), an organization to manage together the river’s use and to solve the problem of food and economic security for the people who live along it. The organization has evolved into one of the world’s leading examples of several governments jointly managing a shared water resource. There are benefits and drawbacks to this development challenge: along with more crops under cultivation has also come more disease.
