The main objective of the Senegal
Country Environmental Analysis (CEA) is to reinforce the
ongoing dialogue on environmental issues between the World
Bank and the Government of Senegal. The CEA also aims to
support the ongoing Government implementation of a strategic
results-based planning process at the Environment Ministry
(MEPNBRLA). The main goal is to enable Senegal to have the
necessary tools to attain the Millennium Development Goals
(MDGs) and manage its natural resources and environment in a
sustainable manner that contributes sharing wealth and
reducing poverty. The CEA presents a review of national
environmental priorities and the institutional framework for
managing these priorities. The CEA also proposes
recommendations about reforms that could be implemented with
the support of international development partners. This
final CEA report includes three sections to encourage
discussion on the observations made from the analysis and
the suggested recommendations: a) section one summarizes the
main environmental issues identified in the CEA
(institutional framework for environmental management,
sustainable management of terrestrial ecosystems, management
of water resources, management of fisheries, and urban
environmental management in Dakar. Other environmental
issues are also tackled in this section, urban environmental
management in regions, waste management, management of
coastal zones, and management of retention basins and
artificial lakes; b) section two analyzes each of the issues
and singles out specific observations and recommendations
about institutional and legal reforms and ways to improve
management; and c) section three summarizes the operational
recommendations drawn from the previous section according to
the main environmental issues identified in the CEA framework.
