Meeting with the Governor of Tambacounda, Senegal

On June 22, Hommes et Terre Senegal was invited to the office of Oumar Mamadou Balde – the Governor of Tambacounda – accompanied by a representative of the Haut Conseil des Collectivités Territoriales. Together with several key infrastructure players – including a water supplier, a road construction company and an electricity supplier – we had the opportunity to present our ecosystem realisations and plans for the coming years in the Tambacounda region.

Being invited to present our ecosystem restauration work and its impact alongside these infrastructure suppliers, means that the Senegalese government considers healthy ecosystems as equally essential as providing water, electricity and mobility. A vision that we fully support. Go Senegal! 

After hearing the experiences of our partner villages, the Governor approved the land right concession, securing our ecosystem investments for the next 30 years. An important step forward for the succes of Hommes Et Terre and its partner communities in Senegal.
