The regional office in Dakar (Senegal) is responsible for managing regional activities and the exchange of knowledge.

Project measures are implemented by BORDA INROs in Mauritania (Nouakchott) and Burkina Faso (Ouagadougou).


Decentralised sanitation and circular economy approaches contribute to equitable change and liveable and inclusive cities in the Sahel region. This improves living conditions and prospects, especially for disadvantaged population groups, and strengthens the capacities of decision-makers.

By empowering local structures for sustainable decentralised sanitation, the resilience of vulnerable urban communities in selected underserved areas to the effects of climate change is strengthened. At the same time, the project measures protect the environment and natural resources.
