Senegal – Stormwater Management and Climate Change Adaptation Project (AF)

The World Bank Board of Directors has approved additional financing for the Senegal Stormwater Management and Climate Change Adaptation Project. The additional financing amounts to a total of $38 million, of which $35 million is provided by the World Bank.

The proposed project will improve stormwater drainage and flood prevention in peri-urban Dakar for the benefit of local residents. The specific goal of the additional financing is to improve flood prevention management in peri-urban areas of Dakar and to promote city sustainability management practices, including climate resilience, in two selected urban areas.
This is to be achieved through the following components:

  • Integration of climate risks in urban planning and management
  • Drainage investments and management
  • Community engagement in urban flood-risk reduction and adaptation to climate change
  • Project coordination, management, monitoring and evaluation
