$200 Million for Sanitation Services and Water Resources Improvement in Senegal

The World Bank has approved $200 million in financing to help Senegal enhance sanitation services and water resource management in key areas facing water security challenges.

This funding represents the first phase of the Integrated Water Security and Sanitation Program for Senegal (PISEA), which aims to improve access to drinking water and sanitation, and increase resilience to floods and droughts.

“Reliable sanitation services provided under the first phase of PISEA will primarily benefit 600,000 inhabitants in greater Dakar. More than seven million people nationwide will benefit from improved water management, including 3,000 farmers who will be able to use treated wastewater to irrigate 600 hectares of land. And it will also help improve the Lac de Guiers water supply system,” said Keiko Miwa, World Bank Country Director for Cabo Verde, The Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Mauritania, and Senegal.

The funds will also support the expansion of collective sanitation services in eastern Dakar and promote the reuse of treated wastewater for irrigation.

“PISEA includes the design and construction of sewage systems in greater Dakar, covering parts of the communes of Pikine and Guédiawaye, as well as an activated sludge treatment plant with a tertiary treatment system. The treated water will then be sent to the rural area of Niayes, where an irrigation distribution network will be built,” noted Stéphane Dahan, World Bank Senior Water Supply and Sanitation Specialist.

Additional components of this financing cover groundwater recharge, reduction of non-revenue water loss, promotion of citizen engagement, and preparation of key sector reforms.

This project is financed by the International Development Association (IDA), the World Bank institution that supports countries in their development efforts. This is the first phase of a 10-year Multiphase Programmatic Approach operation for PISEA, representing a total investment of $800 million.
