The Global Water Initiative (GWI) was an action-research and advocacy programme that ran from 2008-17. The project is now closed. This site is no longer being updated, but allows access to GWI outputs until 1 October 2020 when it will also close. After that date, information about the project and core GWI technical publications will continue to be available from the IIED website and Publications Library.
A participatory process for reducing land conflicts in Senegal
This factsheet looks at how GWI West Africa has worked with rural communities in the Anambé river basin in Senegal 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.
