Ongoing SAVi assessments in Senegal

IISD works with the Bureau Opérationnel de Suivi (BOS) of the Senegalese Government to use SAVi on the Taïba Ndiaye wind farm project and the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project, a sustainable mobility project for the city of Dakar. IISD presented the results of the SAVi assessments during a workshop in Dakar in June. The Conseil Exécutif des Transports Urbains de Dakar to joined the discussions on the results of the BRT assessment. Both SAVi assessments demonstrate the socio-economic value of the projects for the country, and feature a simulation on the project’s potential to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, relative to business as usual scenarios or investments in non-sustainable infrastructure.
