Environment
The largest threats to the Senegalese environment stem from exhaustion of the nation’s natural resources. These threats include overfishing, overgrazing, and deforestation. Pollution and improper disposal of industrial waste constitute major a threat to the environment.1 Senegal has lost hundreds of thousands of hectares of forested land due to logging, hydroelectric projects, and other industries. This is also seen as a contributor to desertification and soil erosion.2 Currently, Senegal does not have adequate climate change legislation in place to help prevent the destruction caused by intense flooding during the rainy season. In poor communities, trash is used as a mechanism to block or soak up floodwaters.3

Senegal relies heavily on donor assistance and foreign direct investment. The country's key export industries are phosphate mining, fertilizer production, and commercial fishing. The country is also working on iron ore and oil exploration projects. After seeing its economy contract by 2.1% in 1993, Senegal made an important turnaround, thanks to an economic reform program backed by the donor community, which led to real growth in GDP averaging over 5% annually during 1995-2007. Annual inflation was pushed down to the single digits. The global economic downturn reduced growth to 2.2% in 2009. The IMF completed a non-dispersing, Policy Support Initiative ...See More program in 2010 and approved a new three-year policy support instrument in December 2010 to assist with economic reforms. Senegal also receives disbursements from a $540 million Millennium Challenge Account for infrastructure and agriculture development. In 2012, the economy began to rebound after a weak 2011. The economy continues to suffer from unreliable power supply, which has led to public protests and high unemployment and has prompted migrants to flee Senegal in search of better job opportunities in Europe.
