Research themes:

VULNERABILITY OF NATURAL AND HUMANS SYSTEMS IN CLIMATE CHANGE ADAPTATION STRATEGIES OF POPULATIONS AFFECTED BY FLOODING IN THE CITY OF DAKAR, SENEGAL.

Senegal, a Sahelian country is widely exposed to vulnerabilities of climate change like deforestation, desertification, loss of rainfall, severe drought since the 1960s period. Dakar the main city, capital of Senegal has been seriously affected by this phenomenon. The return of heavy rains, after many years of drought, has caused a series of floods in all the country. This situation has been intensified in the capital by the modification of land use due to the rapid and uncontrolled urbanization, mostly in risked areas, the fast population growth, the hydro geological context, the malfunction of the hydrologic system, and the absence of a performing drainage network.

The present analysis is a contribution to the study of perceptions and adaptation strategies which will be implemented with local populations in order to reduce vulnerabilities created by the flooding in the context of climate change. In this frame, the study of popular perception on the risk of flooding will be an important contribution for the development of adaptation strategies based on community knowledge and scientific approach.
