This scoping research aims to shed light on the laws and processes that apply to the approval of large-scale, private agricultural investments in Senegal. The study aims to highlight opportunities for integrating climate services into approval processes. It will also identify ways in which approval processes in Senegal could facilitate responsible investments in agriculture.
The joint scoping study is being conducted by CCSI and the African Center of International Law Practice (ACILP). It falls under the umbrella of Adapting Agriculture to Climate Today, for Tomorrow (ACToday), the first Columbia World Project led by the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI).
