Tourist activity is today highly disturbed. At the seaside resort of Saly , the beaches are engulfed by the sea. In fact, with global warming, the sea level increases and more and more causes a phenomenon of coastal erosion. Faced with this worrying situation, the State of Senegal in partnership with the World Bank is trying to provide a lasting solution through the PDTE.

The technical studies started since 2015 under the said project have been completed and solutions have been chosen. These consist of building protection works (ears and breakwaters) accompanied by massive reloading of sand beaches by dredging.

The company responsible for carrying out the work is already recruited. These include Van Oord , a Dutch company specializing in dredging and land reclamation. The signing of the contract between APIX SA and VAN OORD took place August 28, 2018 at the General Management of APIX.SA.
