Our work

This project aims to improve water access for market gardening farmers located in the Pout catchment area where water scarcity and over-irrigation are becoming problematic.  These issues will be addressed through the use of solar photovoltaics pumps to extract groundwater for market gardeners located in the lowlands and building a new well-designed retention basin managed locally and involving all stakeholders at the bottom of Thiès plateau including the gardeners. A GCF concept note was developed for the co-financing of the project components mentioned above along with a guidance document on next steps to access GCF funding and the development of a GCF full proposal.
