Senegal benefits from a buoyant economy, nevertheless facing a number of challenges. In the country’s development plan - Plan Senegal Emergent (PSE) - a key component to address these issues is the development of integrated industrial zones. These shall attract foreign investment, bring new technologies and increase productivity and competitiveness.

The CTCN aims to provide expert advice on appropriate technologies to reduce impacts on climate change and improve the environmental performance of industrial agglomerations, while boosting socio-economic development. The CTCN will assist in promoting technological and process upgrading in existing industries as well as deliver advice on the planning of eco-industrial zones with the view to utilize the full potential of industrial symbiosis (common water, energy and material resources and treatment systems; energy and material recovery; waste valorisation; use of renewable energy and sustainable material substitutes; material and by-product reuse and recycling; etc.).

The CTCN intervention is designed as a two-pronged strategy. One stream of work deals with existing industries in selected priority sectors (e.g. agro-food, textile/leather) with the objective to improve resource productivity and lessen pollution intensity, notably by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The second stream of work pertains to Greenfield industrial parks (e.g. Diamniado) and aims at feeding notions of industrial symbiosis in the planning process.
