Country Acceleration Case Study - Senegal


To accelerate the achievement of SDG 6 targets as part of the SDG 6 Global Acceleration Framework, UN-Water is developing SDG 6 Country Acceleration Case Studies to explore countries’ pathways to achieving accelerated progress on SDG 6 at the national level. The case studies document replicable good practices for achieving the SDG 6 targets as well as look at how progress can be accelerated across SDG 6 targets in a country.

The Senegal case study focuses on the Senegalo-Mauritanian Aquifer Basin, shared by the Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Mauritania and Senegal. The basin is under pressure by population growth, rapid urbanization and climate change, and has strengthened its transboundary cooperation to ensure sustainable water resources management and contribute to the stability of the region. With the need to strengthen transboundary water cooperation globally, the case can offer important lessons.

The case study development in Senegal is facilitated by UNECE and UNESCO on behalf of UN-Water, who are working together with the Ministry of Water and Sanitation in Senegal.
