Centre de Suivi Ecologique (CSE)
The Centre de Suivi Ecologique (CSE) was created in 1986 by the Senegalese government with the support of the Unite Nation Program for the South Sahara Region (UNSO) and the funding of the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA). The creation of this center obeyed to the necessity to study the desertification in the region, to provide data and information for natural resources and mainly to monitor Biomass. Today, the Centre is an association subordinated to the Ministry of Environment and Conservation of Senegal and groups the Senegalese State, the funds of PNUD/UNSO, the private sector, local collectivities and the personal of the Centre.
Its main activities are the collection, capture, processing, analysis and dissemination of data and information resources natural in the territory of Senegal, using space technology.
