PWYP Senegal was affiliated as a PWYP coalition in April 2015 and is formed of 18 NGOs and associations involved in extractive industries governance.

PWYP Senegal focuses on contract transparency, the protection of the environment and revenue transfers to local communities. The coalition participated in the government’s work for the revision of the country’s mining code.

The coalition is involved in the EITI process and has planned to conduct several studies to get a broader understanding of the natural resources sector in Senegal and form the basis of their advocacy. PWYP Senegal has regional representations in all part of countries and is working directly with local communities. In addition, it collaborates by local governments or municipalities.
