Délégation Générale à la Promotion des
Pôles Urbains de Diamniadio et du Lac Rose


A word from the General Delegate

The General Delegation for the Promotion of the Urban Poles of Diamniadio and Pink Lake is the State's lever for conducting this vast program.

It was created by decision of the President of the Republic to conduct a vast program in each of these two poles by developing a new way of conducting urban projects derogating from the common law of urban planning, with a view to greater efficiency and speed of execution.

This innovative approach has proven its success in Diamniadio. Today, we are launching the operational phase of the Pink Lake project.

Why invest
in our poles?

The Diamniadio and Lac Rose urban hubs were created to provide solutions to the problems of urbanization in Dakar. The aim is to find solutions to the housing deficit, the low availability of industrial land, the development of research and training infrastructures and the promotion of a strong economy to achieve Emergence. Diamniadio, a dense and compact city, will be the showcase of a modern and forward-looking Senegal. The Pink Lake, on the other hand, will be this gentle city, twin sister of Diamniadio and new tourist destination of Greater Dakar. Through these two poles, the State of Senegal is opening the way to a new approach to planning with the development of major urban projects on a model of innovative public-private partnerships.
