Sustainable Asset Valuation (SAVi) of Senegal’s Saloum Delta
This report provides the results and technical background of the Sustainable Asset Valuation (SAVi) assessment of the Saloum Delta in Senegal. It finds that the value of the ecosystem services provided by the Delta is degrading over time and, without conservation or restoration interventions, will continue doing so.
The assessment provides an economic valuation of the contribution of the Delta to local livelihoods and regional development. It assesses a range of scenarios and simulates how these scenarios affect the economic contribution of the Saloum Delta.
Different stakeholders are using this study to identify and implement strategies that both protect the Saloum Delta ecosystem and increase revenues from the ecosystem services. The more revenues the ecosystem services can provide, the higher the incentive will be for stakeholders to prioritize its continued maintenance and upgrading.
