Plant Trees In Senegal
Why plant trees in Senegal?
Senegal is highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events.
- Senegal is plagued by flooding during the rainy season when rivers overflow and scientists say climate change is exacerbating the problem with increasingly heavy rain and a rise in the sea level.
- Mean annual temperature in Senegal has increased by 0.9°C since 1960, an average rate of 0.20°C per decade.
