Recurrent flooding is one of the most serious problems that Senegal has been facing over the last years, making it a serious concern for the Government. At the end of August 2009, heavy rainfall once again caused serious flooding in Senegal, particularly in Dakar but also in the rest of the country. The flooding was not caused by exceptionally heavy rainfall but rather due to unfavorable existing conditions and the lack of a functioning stormwater drainage system. According to Government figures about 360,000 people were directly affected.

A Post Disaster Need Assessment (PDNA) was carried out at the request of the Ministry of Economy and Finance, under the leadership of the Ministry of Interior, from October 26 to November 13, 2009. The assessment was conducted by a joint team consisting of representatives of the Government of the Republic of Senegal and members of the international community, including the World Bank, United Nations agencies and the European Commission. It was funded by the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) with the support of the Governments of Luxembourg and Sweden, United Nations agencies and other technical and financial partners.
