A participatory process for reducing land conflicts in Senegal

Modou Diouf

Briefing

Rural communities in the Anambé river basin in Senegal have been helping to raise awareness of local land use planning processes (POAS) in their local areas. This approach has resulted in a significant reduction in the number of conflicts over land in the region, and could be replicated elsewhere.

This factsheet was produced as part of the work by the Global Water Initiative (GWI) in West Africa, which is an initiative funded by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation and implemented by IIED with IUCN.

Project information

Agriculture in large-scale rice irrigation schemes needs to be made to work for both the state, in terms of economic returns and national food security, and for the smallholders whose livelihoods depend on it. When it comes to the development of new dams and large-scale irrigation, more information is needed about their economic viability and how the water, land, and economic benefits can be shared equitably to support local development.
