Senegal - Water and sanitation in Senegal


Hann Bay sports the world's second largest beach after Rio and was once the pride of Dakar's residents. Yet, today it is severely polluted by discharges from cargo vessels at sea and by industrial waste and untreated wastewater. However, local resident and business associations are beginning to mobilise, while the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) has chosen to fund an extensive industrial depollution programme... a pioneering step in Senegal.
Although almost all urban residents now have access to drinking water, a third of Senegalese still have no access to sanitation services. Senegal has begun to tackle the problem by setting up its Water and Sanitation Millennium Program (Pepam). The aim is to reach the Millennium Development Goals by 2015.
