Senegal River Basin Monitoring Activity, Hydrological Issues, Part II: A Report based on Discussions and Bibliographical Work in Senegal, Fieldwork around Matam and Subsequent Data Analysis
This brief study involved literature review, discussions, field work and analysis. Thirty-two recommendations are made. The most important is that Manantali's long term operation should be changed to include the release of water to augment the natural flood in the valley. A new real time forecasting model will be required to facilitate this. Other important recommendations seek modifications to the ITALTEKNA irrigation project and the continuation or extension of data collection Programs.
