    The local community may have other designs and aspirations for the use of the water resources in a drainage basin. One of the greatest benefits of decentralization is the possibility to include the views of the community in the development of the river basin management strategies and in environmental planning. Thus, community participation has. The Organisation pour la mise en valeur du fleuve Sénégal (OMVS; in English Senegal River Basin Development Authority) is an organisation grouping Guinea, Mali, Mauritania and Senegal for the purpose of jointly managing the Senegal River and its drainage basin.. In a predecessor organization was established, the Organisation des Etats Riverians du Fleuve Sénégal (or the Senegal River.

Inthe OMVS implemented environmental conservation measures for the Senegal River Basin, such as the Environmental Impact Mitigation and Monitoring Program (“PASIE”) (Program d’Atténuation et de Suivi des Impacts sur l’Environment), in response to the Diama and Manatli Dams.

The development objective of the Senegal River Basin Integrated Water Management Project is to strengthen the capacity of OMVS (Organization for the Development of the Senegal River) and local water user associations to improve the environmental conditions.

The Senegal River is formed by the confluence of two smaller rivers, the Bafing and Bakoye, which occurs near Bafoulabé, Mali, at about 1, km from the Atlantic Ocean. 1 After crossing western Mali, the Senegal River constitutes the boundary between Senegal and Mauritania. The Senegal River basin (SRB) occupies a total area ofkm includes three main regions—the upper basin.

The Senegal River basin is located in West Africa, and covers % of the continent and spreads over four countries: Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, and Senegal. The Senegal River is the second largest river in West Africa.

It is km long and drains into the Atlantic Ocean. The Senegal River basin covers a surface area of about, km2. The File Size: 4MB. Comprehensive studies should be undertaken on the organization of river basin development authorities-national and international-and on the various development methodologies.

These studies should be made available to all nations, especially those initiating integrated river basin development projects.

The project has the overall objective of ensuring the sustainable management of the basin's water resources, biodiversity and environment.

To reach this goal, four main components have been tentatively identified: (i) The Environmental Management Structure Component, aiming at establishing effective institutional structures and mechanisms for the correct management of the Senegal Basin, both.

Geography of the Basin The four Senegal River Basin states are Guinea, Mali, Mauretania, and Senegal. The tributaries of the one thousand mile river flow from the rain-soaked highlands of Guinea and upper Mali before joining near Bakel, Senegal, to serve as an irregular border between Mauretania and Senegal's arid plains.the basin of the Senegal River, West Africa.

This basin has been subjected to severe famines and an array of other, partly related development malaises during the past fifty years. The case study leans principally on the following documents: Varis & Fraboulet-Jussila (), Varis & Lahtela () and Lahtela (, ).
