In Dakar, Senegal, on 30 June 2010, the second in-country Executing Agency (EA) for the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) was introduced at the launch of the national GSF programme. At the same event a Memorandum Of Agreement was concluded between UNOPS – representing GSF and WSSCC - and the Government of Senegal, represented by the Honourable Adama Sall, Senegal’s Minister of Urbanisation and Sanitation. WSSCC thus committed to spend $5 million in Senegal over the next five years in order to help more people attain safe sanitation and practice good hygiene. AGETIP is now proceeding to develop the Global Sanitation Fund implementation work in Senegal.
The flyer gives background information to the programme and highlights the outcomes achieved so far. It will be periodically updated.
