   Sommaire exécutif Abstract:
This report assesses the attention given to water resource management and identifies barriers to achieving water security. The study also takes a closer look at the Greater Dakar region, where achieving water security will be most critical to development.
The study finds that because water demand in Senegal already exceeds available resources, it is essential to diversify supply. A circular economy approach to water security could bring enormous benefits, helping the country develop wastewater reuse for aquifer recharge and irrigation, while capitalizing on wetlands and green infrastructure to improve stormwater management and capture. Recommendations from the report include loss reduction and efficiency measures, fit-for-purpose source allocation and the development of non-conventional resources such as desalination and wastewater recycling. In the DMT, a multisectoral and multi-actor collaboration platform with a view to strengthening water governance is needed to restore and maintain the balance between the use of water resources today and their protection for future uses.
