Map of Senegal


Senegal is unique in that it is the westernmost point of the African continent, located at the tip of the Almadies in Dakar, the country's capital. Both in urban and rural areas, land in this small country is highly coveted by domestic and foreign actors with diverse, even incompatible objectives. In addition to the demand for family and industrial agriculture, pastoralism, mining, infrastructure, tourism and housing, the pressure on land is amplified by population growth and soil degradation.
