Fig. 1 - S2 (13.01.2020) - Niayes is a 25-30 km wide strip of land along the Atlantic coast between Dakar, Senegal & Nouakchott, Mauritania.
Fig. 2 - S2 (13.01.2020) - Behind the 100m-wide Grande Côte beach strip, the area has a ridge of coastal sand dunes.
Niayes is vital to the economy of Senegal, being used for fishing, aviculture and producing 80% of Senegal's vegetables, fruit and rice.
Fig. 3 - S2 (13.01.2020) - Belts of salt-tolerant filaos have been planted from Dakar to Saint Louis to prevent wind erosion of the soil.
Fig. 4 - S1 (04.01.2020) - The filaos line protects the coastland by stabilising the dunes & shields the farmland at east from the wind.
