From the 16th to 21st September 2013, Wetlands International Africa (WIA) office in Senegal hosted delegates from University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (USA). Assessment of local issues in sustainable management of natural resources and the establishment of potential areas of collaboration, in the region of the Senegal River Basin, were top in the agenda.
During their visit, the three representatives of the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, together with a team of Wetlands International Africa staff, visited the Senegalese region of Saint Louis where they conducted field visits and held meetings with stakeholders, including CIFA, SAED, ISRA and LSU.
Very rich exchanges came up from these meetings during which the American visitors and their host drafted proposals for stronger collaboration.
