Sustainable resettlement and reconstruction in flood-prone peri-urban areas of Saint Louis, Senegal

Saint-Louis is located on the northwest coast of Senegal and was the capital city from 1673 until 1902. Its historic town centre was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in December 2000. The city counts approximately 250,000 inhabitants and is expanding rapidly. Unfortunately the city lacks an adequate supply of land that is “safe” for urban development.
