3108 - Building a Digital Future and Driving Sustainable Development in Senegal

Session Speakers
Session Description

Faced with major challenges such as land management, drought mitigation, water resources discovery and management, urban development, good governance and national security (to name just a few), the government of Senegal through the Direction des Travaux Géographiques et Cartographiques of the Agence Nationale de l'Aménagement du territoire (ANAT) has laid out a strategy which aims to use geospatial information as a key asset for its quest towards sustainable development. The core mission is to carry out national policies in cartography (base mapping) and geospatial base data production, management and dissemination. The ANAT is also currently leading the development of a National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) in Senegal with the goal of regularly producing and distributing at no cost reliable geospatial data (i.e. accurate, current, complete) to governmental organizations,NGOs, private entities, and the public at large for use in their respective projects and programs.
