Abstract:
The Senegal River Basin is located in the Sahel, a droughtstricken region of West Africa. Water scarcity in this basin and the important constraint it represents for economic growth and the establishment of a desirable quality of life for the populations has been a reality before the drought conditions arose in the region. Aware of this situation and of the potential benefits of managing the resources of the basin, three of the four basin-states (Mali, Mauritania, and Senegal) decided to develop the basin as a whole. The integrated development plan includes the construction of an infrastructure to serve three purposes (irrigation, navigation, and hydropower) for multiple objectives. The optimal allocation of water resources in such complex conditions for a fair and equitable use necessitates careful and detailed studies to provide input to the various decision-making processes. Among those inputs are those highly uncertain, like streamflows. To handle this type of uncertainty, various water quality and quantity simulation and optimization techniques use synthetic streamflows. In this study, two models for the generation of streamflows in the Senegal River and its tributaries are selected, adapted, and partially tested for use in future studies and recommendations made for future investigations.
