Knowledge fair as part of the Adaptation Fund 2020 virtual country exchange hosted by Senegal (December 2020)
Senegal hosted the second country exchange visit. In the context of the health crisis due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the exchange visit was held virtually in the premises of the Ecological Monitoring Center (CSE) in the form of a webinar. The objective of this virtual exchange visit was to share Senegal’s experience in the fight against coastal erosion and disaster risk reduction based on CSE’s Adaptation Fund funded project: Adaptation to coastal erosion in vulnerable areas and a second World Bank project titled: Coastal risk monitoring and soft solutions in Benin, Senegal and Togo which was financed with a contribution from France through the French Environment Fund.
The third and final session of webinars of the country exchange was held on Thursday, December 10, 2020 which was in the form of a knowledge exchange between participating NIEs and the NIE hosting the event. The webinar involved exchanges of experiences between NIEs in terms of the design and implementation of projects financed by the Adaptation Fund and the presentation of the documentary film produced by the Centre de Suivi Ecologique (CSE).
