Senegal Awards Public Drinking Water Supply Concession To Suez


The Senegalese Ministry of Hydraulics and Sanitation has decided to award water management in urban and peri-urban areas to the French group, Suez. Three companies were in the race to obtain the concession, including the outgoing Senegalese water company, a subsidiary of Eranove, a Franco-African group and Veolia. Why Suez? It is a question that stakeholders in the water sector, particularly the Independent Union of Senegalese Water Workers, have been wondering about.
