Restoration and Monitoring of Degraded Land in the Groundnut Basin of the Saloum Delta in Senegal


The project aims to contribute towards reducing the impact of climate change on land degradation and improving community resilience and land reclamation practices in the Saloum Delta. The proposed key project interventions include: (a) using drones to monitor and analyse the level of land degradation using digital 3D modelling and generated photogrammetry images; (b) strengthening the system for monitoring adaptation measures, leading to more efficient conservation strategies, restoration and productivity of severely degraded sites; (c) promoting the use of solar energy for land desalination; and (d) supporting the reduction of people’s vulnerability by introducing innovative technologies and strengthening community involvement in restoration and productivity techniques.
