This prospective study builds on the analysis carried out in a retrospective study of agriculture and natural resources management (NRM) in Senegal (Volume 1). It highlights pressing issues in the sector and makes recommendations for promising activities. The report examines sustainable natural resources management, acknowledging that natural resources and agriculture are intricately connected. The authors recommend that the following areas be prioritized for future NRM sector development: Helping communities and villages develop resource inventories as a step towards elaborating resource management plans and developing periodic state of the environment reports; Assisting in the identification and understanding of environmental indicators as a means of helping to direct community development; Assisting the government with developing both sound local management systems and supporting policies that protect local resources from outside exploitation; Assisting in the development of local skills in resource management and in understanding the real values of resources. The report highlights the need for improved coordination at all levels between different partners and offers suggestions for improved information flow. Finally, the report proposes the following major components to develop the Senegal NRM sector: Define and structure the role of the government in the development process; Define and reorient the role of the private sector; Structure a unified approach for information sharing; Identify specific intervention technologies for NRM sector interventions.
