Senegal

Senegal is currently facing an increasing demand for transparency and reliability of information regarding tenure management and land deals. As such, the Senegal National Land Observatory (NLO) aims to display information on large-scale land acquisitions (LSLAs) in the country. More importantly, it also seeks to provide a tool to share and discuss information through a dynamic database that will inform debates on LSLAs and ultimately improve decision-making on land-based activities.

Country profiles

Country profiles present national-level data of large-scale land acquisitions and transactions including who the investors are, what the aim of the investment is, who the former owner was and what the land was previously used for, and what the potential benefits and impacts of the land deals are.

By making this information available, the Land Matrix hopes to enhance broad engagement and data exchange, facilitating the continuous improvement of the data. Find out how to get involved here .
