Musée des Civilisations | Museum | Proposed



Musée des civilisations noires.
On July 18 2003, the President of the Republic of Senegal, Abdoulaye Wade, laid the first stone to the Museum of Black Civilisations (Musée des Civilisations Noires) in Dakar, pronouncing it to be a giant step to restore the pride in African history.
Hamady Bocum, director of Cultural Heritage, Ministry of Culture in Senegal, thinks the museum is a good idea. “We need to safeguard the cultural diversity for the postcolonial generations. A Mexican architect has planned it and it will consist of a museum, a festival, a library, a theatre for multicultural performances, a monument of African Renaissance and a Monument for Memories and solemn occasions”.





Senegal
In 1960, the distinguished poet and philosopher Léopold Sédar Senghor led Senegal to independence. Since that time, the country has been playing an important role in the West African arts, thanks to its biannual arts festival Dak’Art, its musicians such as Youssou N’Dour, and the Gorée Diaspora Festival that has been held for over 30 years now.
The National Programme for the Development of Culture (Le Programme National de Développement de la Culture, PNDC) launched in 2005 by the Ministry for Culture and Historical Heritage is founded on two pillars, namely unity and diversity. Culture is something that creates a sense of community at both a national and regional level. At the same time, Senegal recognises the importance of cultural diversity in a world that is undergoing globalisation. The Ministry is trying to stimulate the cultural sector, to retain Senegal’s heritage and to promote Senegal as Africa’s cultural crossroads. The national culture programme is decentralised in nature, with the local culture offices being charged with its implementation and with the organisation of cultural activities in their region.
In addition to the national culture programme, there are the ‘grands projects culturels du Chef de L’Etat’ that President Me Abdoulaye Wade is overseeing. These presidential projects include the construction of a national theatre and academy of art in the capital city of Dakar and the foundation of a Museum of Black Civilisations (Musée des Civilisations Noires), the latter also being something that Senghor strived for.
One important piece of Senegal’s heritage is the former slave island Gorée. Senegal has now set up the Gorée Institute there, a research institute founded in 1992 after the historical meeting between the ANC (banned in South Africa during the apartheid era) and progressive white Afrikaners, as well as the Gorée Almadies Memorial designed by the Italian architect Ottavio di Blasi and under construction since September 2003. This futuristic cultural centre, a tribute to the millions of Africans who were victims of the slave trade, contains a documentation archive, concert halls and art galleries.

This is so cool! I've actually been there!!!

On the picture we can see Place Soweto, where is located the IFAN museum. When I visited the place, there was already a working site but the building hadn't raised yet. There was a big rendering poster of it though. I never thought I'd see it in real on a photo.

DP World inaugurates new Dakar terminal after expansion
2 December 2011



DUBAI/DAKAR— Global marine terminal operator DP World officially opened what is now West Africa’s largest and most modern container terminal, Terminal à Conteneur.

The new facility, developed and operated by DP World, was inaugurated by DP World chairman Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem and Senegal President Abdoulaye Wade.

Expanded and upgraded by DP World Dakar following a concession agreement signed in 2007, the terminal’s capacity is more than doubling from less than 300,000 twenty-foot equivalent container units, or TEU, to more than 600,000 TEU.

The opening ceremony at the Port of Dakar was attended by Dakar Port Authority managing director Bara Sady, DP World chief executive officer Mohammed Sharaf, DP World Africa senior vice-president and managing director Joost Kruijning, DP World Dakar chief executive officer Guido Heremans and other officials.

The expansion of the terminal and the upgrading of the facilities and equipment makes DP World Dakar the most modern and efficient terminal in western Africa. Our experience is that economies grow as efficient infrastructure comes on line and today it opens up a whole new world of economic possibilities for Senegal and West African communities. We are grateful to the Government of Senegal for their support and cooperation in helping to make this possible,” Bin Sulayem said.

“We congratulate all those involved on their commitment and professional execution of the project. As Africa’s favoured first port of call for vessels south-bound from Europe, DP World Dakar occupies an important place in our global portfolio. We believe the successful completion of the development at the Autonomous Port of Dakar will ably meet our customers’ needs in this fast developing region,” Sharaf said.

“This ceremony is a significant step in our partnership with DP World. It shows our respective commitment to realise our ambition to improve quality of service at Dakar port container terminal. I can express our satisfaction on DP World Dakar operation in our port and look forward to an increase of the throughput of containers in the terminal,” Sady said.

SENEGAL | Dakar | Blaise Diagne International Airport | 3million PAX | U/C









The New International Airport





DESCRIPTION
This project is about the building of a new international airport, to replace the existing Leopold Sedar Senghor airport of Dakar-Yoff ; this new airport will be built to meet the demand in mid-term and long-term air traffic.
• Capacity of 2000 ha against the current 800 ha;
• Possibility of building two 4.000 m X 60 m runways designed for the existing and future high-capacity aircraft (third-generation planes);
• An initial capacity of 3 million passengers per year, which could be extended by modules by 2020;
• Capacity of 50.000 aircraft movements per year by 2020.
This airport will have several purposes: passenger and freight traffic, commercial services, workshop for the maintenance of aircraft, premises for the storing and conservation of fresh produce.

PROJECT COST
The estimated cost of this project (in terms of investments) is CFA F173 billion, 260 million Euros, not including costs related to upkeep and relocation of local populations, which are estimated at CFA F7 billion, or 10 million Euros.


OBJECTIVES
The main objectives of this project are to:
• Contribute to relieving the pressure on the Dakar traffic, by favouring the emergence of a second economic pole outside the region of Dakar;
• Make Senegal a hub airport and a preferential technical stop in West Africa for air traffic from and to Europe, North and South America;
• Create optimum conditions, in order to welcome 1 500 000 tourists by 2010;
• Improve the quality of services, reduce bottlenecks;
• Develop our exports and play a leading role in our regional space;
• Increase our investments through a significant growth of foreign investment flows;
• Develop some space for the performance of airport-related industrial activities (aeronautical maintenance, a domain in which Senegal has some expertise) .

MODE OF FINANCING
Given the high cost of investment and the government’s constraints in terms of public finance, the plan is to resort to public-private partnership, of D.B.O.T. (Design, Built, Operate, Transfer) type.

STATE OF PROGRESS
• The site has been identified and secured (40 km from Dakar);
• Carrying out of a technical, economic and financial feasibility study, in cooperation with ABB International, focusing on the following points:
o transport study,
o Technical dimensioning,
o study of financial feasibility,
o study of social economic aspects,
o analysis of the environmental impact.
• Development of an economic and financial model
• Payment of a part of upkeep expenses (Ndiass zone);
• Preliminary analysis of the network of inlets (water, electricity and telecommunications);
• Initiation of state-related actions (access to site, resorting to air army and constabulary);
• Physical security (building of the property wall on free zones;
• Financial mobilisation for the payment in full of upkeep expenses
• Carrying out of an update study of the technical, economic, environmental, social and financial feasibility ;
• Carrying out of a displacement and relocation plan .

NEXT STEPS
• Carrying out of the state-incumbent actions (displacement of populations, setting up of networks of inlets, building of infrastructures for the air army etc.) ;
• Preparation of the call for tenders dossier, to select a private operator.

Every large project starts with a study (costs, economic impact, environmental impact etc) There is nothing wrong with that, its all part of the process. We just need to be patient.
