The objective of the Senegal-HYCOS project is to set up a system of relevant information on all the water resources of the Senegal basin, fed with recent and sound data, and easily accessible to all types of users, especially through leveraging new technologies. Navigation issues and the exploitation of the hydroelectric potential available in the basin will be explored. The Senegal-HYCOS project is one of the HYCOS projects designed in alignment with the new WHYCOS strategy and will kick-start when funding is secured.
