Governance and natural disasters:addressing flooding in Saint Louis, Senegal

This paper, written by Khady Diagne from ENDA–Tiers Monde, describes an initiative to develop responses to flooding, in the city of Saint Louis, that focused both on reducing risks and on better preparedness in a city with very limited investment capacity.

It focused on building responses that draw on local knowledge and on supporting the engagement of all stakeholders in identifying causes and local solutions both to reduce risks and to reduce people’s vulnerability to them.
