Nouakchott forum on Senegal River basin ends

Nouakchott- Mauritania (PANA) -- A three-day workshop on optimum use of the Senegal River basin resources has ended here with recommendations geared towards substantial improvement in the economic and social conditions of countries sharing the waterway.
Officials said here Wednesday that the recommendations were being compiled into a report to be made public at a later date.
Experts from the three member countries - Mali, Mauritania and Senegal - had gathered at the third in a series of brainstorming sessions aimed at drawing up an all-inclusive programme on optimum exploitation of the resources in the Senegal River basin.
In closing remarks Tuesday, the secretary-general of the Mauritianian Water Ministry indicated that the "relevant proposals" from the three workshops of the inclusive programme showed the effectiveness of the established consultation and dialogue framework called the Technical and Legal Cooperation Commission.
