With Guinea and Senegal benefiting from at least 2,000 to 3,000 hours of sunshine per year, a project implemented under the Agricultural and Rural Prospects Initiative (ARPI) will enable the installation of solar-powered irrigation systems for the development of sustainable agriculture in these West African countries.
Their training was made possible through a partnership between DP World and BCI, a non-governmental organisation, which hosted the course at their regional centre in Toubab Dialao, a village around 60 km from the capital, Dakar.
Powered by an array of solar panels with a combined 14.8 kW capacity, the solar pumping system can pump up to 2,000 cubic meters of water daily down a 7 km irrigation canal. Benefiting up to 400 market farmers, the project has been implemented by non-governmental organization (NGO), Enda Tiers Monde.
GIZ is financing the installation of a solar pumping system in the locality of Khor Bango near the city of Saint-Louis. The new station will allow the irrigation of 400 market gardeners in the framework of the Sustainable Energy for Entrepreneurship and Climate Programme (PEDEC).
Morocco’s Agency for Energy Efficiency and the Senegalese National Agency for Renewable Energy have entered into a landmark partnership agreement, pledging bilateral knowledge exchange, open data sharing and joint advancement in the energy transition.
