West Africa Francophone ccTLD Workshop
7th - 11th December 2009 , Dakar, Senegal
“Enhancing Internet Management in Africa”
Dakar is the capital city of Senegal, located on the Cape Verde Peninsula, on the country's Atlantic coast. It is Senegal's largest city. Its position, on the western edge of Africa
(it is the westernmost African city), is an advantageous departure
point for trans-Atlantic and European trade; this fact aided its growth
into a major regional port.
Dakar has a tropical savanna climate, with a short rainy season and a lengthy dry season. The climate borders on a semi-arid climate.
Dakar's rainy season lasts from July to October while the dry season
covers the remaining eight months. The city sees approximately 540 mm
of precipitation per year.
Dakar stands as a multicultural, diverse city full of vibrant arts and
traditions. Residents from various ethnic groups present assorted
crafts, foods, jewelry, fabrics and wood and metal goods at bustling
markets such as Marche Sandaga or Marche HLM. The city is home to
museums and mosques, cliff walks and beaches, and makes a convenient
jumping point for excursions to any of Senegal's national parks and
