The Prime Minister, Ousmane Sonko, chairs this Thursday, May 16, 2024, in Diamniadio, an interministerial council dedicated to the prevention and management of floods for winter 2024. According to the Government Information Office (Big), this meeting follows to the directives given by the President of the Republic, Bassirou Diomaye Diakhar Faye, during the Council of Ministers of May 8, 2024.

The meeting will bring together all the Ministries and State services concerned, but also territorial actors and other members of civil society involved in flood management. “The work will allow the Head of Government to identify, in accordance with the guidelines set out by the Head of State, a series of flagship measures with a view to better preparation for the 2024 winter season,” we read in the Big News bulletin. .

The same Source maintains that President Bassirou Diomaye Faye has made flood prevention and management a priority concern. On May 8, while chairing the meeting of the Council of Ministers, the Head of State, for example, asked the Prime Minister to engage, from now on, all Ministers, State services and concerned territorial stakeholders, to propose a National Flood Prevention and Management Plan.

“In the process, the President of the Republic invited the Minister of Hydraulics and Sanitation to immediately ensure the identification of priority localities, zones and sites in terms of pre-wintering development work and deployment of the means of intervention of the National Fire Brigade (Bnsp) and military engineers,” we read in the document.

And to ensure correct monitoring of the actions carried out, details the Big, he instructed the Minister of Hydraulics and Sanitation to make, under the supervision of the Prime Minister, a weekly communication on the subject, in the Council of Ministers.
