These are some of the recent projects that Prof. Salif Diop is being involved:

  Global Assessment of the Vulnerability of Water Resources to Environmental Change

This is a framework used to assess the vulnerability of surface and groundwater to human land uses, within an integrated river basin management approach. In Africa, the project has provided significant baseline information on vulnerable aquifers fed by the River Nile in North Africa, serious freshwater shortages in West Africa, the variable rain-fed aquifers of Eastern Africa, and the uneven distribution of freshwater in Southern Africa. 

More detailed assessments on the rivers, lakes and aquifer basins are being carried out in Africa, including Central Africa and the Indian ocean Islands. Assessments have begun in Asia. Latin America and the Caribbean will follow soon. This approach will also include the Integrated Water Resource management. There is a specific focus on groundwater vulnerability.


Regular process for Global reporting and Assessment of the State of the Marine Environment

The process of investigating the potential establishment of a regular marine environment assessment to provide accurate information to decision markers on the state of the marine environment was initiated in 1999 at the seventh session of the Commission on Sustainable Development. In 2002, the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD), agreed, in paragraph 36 (b) of the Plan of implementation of the WSSD (Johannesburg Plan of Implementation) to establish a regular process under the United Nations for global reporting and assessment of the marine environment, including socio-economic aspects, both current and foreseeable, building on existing regional assessments. The United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in resolutions 57/141 (paragraph 45) and 58/240 (paragraphs 64-65) endorsed the paragraph.
