Hamerlynck, O. and S. Duvail

Publication Date:

This book, which tells the story of an ecosystem approach to the rehabilitation of the lower delta of the Senegal River in Mauritania, in and around Diawling National Park, is a companion volume to that guide. Its main objective is to provide practitioners with a “feel” for what the approach can entail in the real-life setting of a remote corner of the Sahel, where people’s livelihoods are inextricably tied to the productivity of their delta. This productivity is in turn influenced by the mixing of fresh and saline waters during the floods, and by the surface area flooded
