Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Conditions at Artisanal Seafood Processing Sites in Senegal: Technical Learning Note

Through site visits and interviews with women seafood processors and key stakeholders, Business Drivers for Food Safety (BD4FS), a USAID-funded project implemented by Food Enterprise Solutions, discovered that processing sites are at high risk of food contamination that could be largely prevented through proper water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) infrastructure and use. This study also revealed that maintaining shared WASH facilities is particularly challenging when compared to household-level WASH and calls for a well-structured and well implemented business management model.
