Project for the Identification and Management of Urban Waste
in the Commune of Abomey-Calavi (PIGDAC)
Major challenges: The city of Abomey-Calavi faces many challenges related to the collection and management
of urban waste. There are many illegal dumpsites in the city, which can pollute the rivers and groundwater in the
municipality. This will affect the health and well-being of both populations and aquatic species.
The objective of the project is to locate the areas where waste is concentrated in the city and to be able to
estimate the size of the population affected by this waste dumped in the open air without any prior precaution.
This pilot project started in April 2019 with a first series of data collection by drones. In the coming weeks, further
data sets will be collected and analysis will also be carried out.
Other activities
Training of trainers on drone mapping operations and the use of GIS to analyze drone data

Dassa-Zoumè City Drone Mapping Project (PCDD)
Major challenges: Like all the other municipalities in the department of the hills, the municipality of Dassa-Zoumè,
the capital of the department, faces major difficulties in land management, assessing the state of the
municipality's vegetation cover and preventing natural risks such as flooding. To help overcome these difficulties,
the ''Groupement Intercommunal des Collines'' (GIC) supports the municipalities of the department in local socio-
economic development.
One of the major objectives of the IAG (Niagara Falls) is to develop a Geoportal for the department that will help
to better address the challenges mentioned above. It is within this framework that the IAG, in partnership with the
town hall of Dassa-Zoumè, requested the implementation of this pilot project. The objective of the project is to
show the various stakeholders the potential offered by drones in the creation of the geoportal and in the
improvement of communal management and living conditions of the populations.
The PCDD was implemented thanks to various partners such as WeRobotics, Global Partners, the Digital
Development Agency (ADN), the GIC and the Dassa-Zoumè City Hall. The project was implemented from October
2018 to February 2019. During this period, an information session and a demonstration flight were conducted in
Dassa-Zoumè and data was collected by drones for the production of the city map. In addition, analyses were
carried out and a feedback workshop was organized.
The direct beneficiaries of the project are the GIC, the town hall of Dassa-Zoumè. The indirect beneficiaries are
the other mayors of the department, the other actors of local development in the municipality as well as the
population of the city of Dassa-Zoumè.
The project has enabled the town hall of Dassa-Zoumè to have different maps of the city and to have a better
knowledge of its various applications in order to better achieve the town hall's objectives. In addition, some maps
were shared with history and geography teachers to better illustrate their courses. The project also made it
possible to identify the constraints to the use of drones by town halls and to formulate a solution approach. The
perceptions of local development actors on drones were also assessed. Indeed, at the end of the project, 53.60%
and 39.30% of local development actors were respectively convinced and very convinced of the ability of drones
to contribute to local development.

  • 3. Newsletter 2 Q2 2019 Project for the Identification and Management of Urban Waste in the Commune of Abomey-Calavi (PIGDAC) Major challenges: The city of Abomey-Calavi faces many challenges related to the collection and management of urban waste. There are many illegal dumpsites in the city, which can pollute the rivers and groundwater in the municipality. This will affect the health and well-being of both populations and aquatic species. The objective of the project is to locate the areas where waste is concentrated in the city and to be able to estimate the size of the population affected by this waste dumped in the open air without any prior precaution. This pilot project started in April 2019 with a first series of data collection by drones. In the coming weeks, further data sets will be collected and analysis will also be carried out. Other activities Training of trainers on drone mapping operations and the use of GIS to analyze drone data Date: 13-18 May 2019 Location: Mamoune Residences, Dakar Organizer: WeRobotics, Senegal Flying Labs Objectives : Provide participants with the theoretical and practical knowledge to conduct drone mapping operations, from collection planning to final product generation.

  • 5. Newsletter 1 Q1 2019 Dassa-Zoumè City Drone Mapping Project (PCDD) Major challenges: Like all the other municipalities in the department of the hills, the municipality of Dassa-Zoumè, the capital of the department, faces major difficulties in land management, assessing the state of the municipality's vegetation cover and preventing natural risks such as flooding. To help overcome these difficulties, the ''Groupement Intercommunal des Collines'' (GIC) supports the municipalities of the department in local socio- economic development. One of the major objectives of the IAG (Niagara Falls) is to develop a Geoportal for the department that will help to better address the challenges mentioned above. It is within this framework that the IAG, in partnership with the town hall of Dassa-Zoumè, requested the implementation of this pilot project. The objective of the project is to show the various stakeholders the potential offered by drones in the creation of the geoportal and in the improvement of communal management and living conditions of the populations. The PCDD was implemented thanks to various partners such as WeRobotics, Global Partners, the Digital Development Agency (ADN), the GIC and the Dassa-Zoumè City Hall. The project was implemented from October 2018 to February 2019. During this period, an information session and a demonstration flight were conducted in Dassa-Zoumè and data was collected by drones for the production of the city map. In addition, analyses were carried out and a feedback workshop was organized. The direct beneficiaries of the project are the GIC, the town hall of Dassa-Zoumè. The indirect beneficiaries are the other mayors of the department, the other actors of local development in the municipality as well as the population of the city of Dassa-Zoumè. The project has enabled the town hall of Dassa-Zoumè to have different maps of the city and to have a better knowledge of its various applications in order to better achieve the town hall's objectives. In addition, some maps were shared with history and geography teachers to better illustrate their courses. The project also made it possible to identify the constraints to the use of drones by town halls and to formulate a solution approach. The perceptions of local development actors on drones were also assessed. Indeed, at the end of the project, 53.60% and 39.30% of local development actors were respectively convinced and very convinced of the ability of drones to contribute to local development.
