6th IFGR session in Senegal – from 9 to 13 April 2018


IFGR will organise its 6th session from 9 to 13 April in Saint-Louis and Dakar, in Senegal, hosted by the Senegal River Development Organisation (OMVS), a member of its committee. An intergovernmental organisation (Mali, Mauritania, Senegal and then Guinea), the OMVS was founded in 1972 to establish multisector and integrated development in the basin, focusing on energy production, navigation and irrigation, drinking water, and the environment.

The challenge is ensure balanced water distribution in Senegal between the different uses on the scale of a basin covering 300,000 km2.

This session will be devoted to the issue of the river’s navigability and the optimisation of crop irrigation to support economic development.
