Wall Co-Authors Article on Public Health, Dams in Senegal River Basin


Visiting Assistant Professor of History Rebecca Wall recently co-authored an article on the public health effects of dams in the Senegal River basin. The article appears in Vol. 133 of the journal Environmental Science & Policy.

Wall and her co-authors have collaborated on this research since 2017 with the support of the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center in Annapolis, Maryland, and their work is unusual for bringing together experts from numerous disciplines in the sciences and social sciences. They found that although health is recognized as an important component of river basin development, priorities articulated at the policy level are not translated into management practices.
